[REBOL] Re: Command/Pro call interact with external program using STDIO
From: jeperk:swbell at: 29-Jan-2003 10:08
To introduce myself, my name is John Perkins. I just bought both SDK's
and joind the list yesterday.
I was failing at this yestersay and I really hoped it was just my lack
of REBOL skills.
I was expecting a bit different functionality in this area. The
documentation seems to say that piping is functional, however I'm not
seeing it either.
I hoped that the call/output function could be used for monitoring a
program that constantly spews output.
Instead, this seems to ack like call/wait with no way to continue since
the output never stops.
The other odddity is that you have to use "/" instead of "\" in paths
passed as an arg in a Windows exe call.
Are we missing something similar on call/output and call/input?
