I used shell("open ....") on Mac. Here another use of it:
(may be mentioned somewhere else, was new for me).

Open multiple instances of a LC version on Mac.

Each click on that button opens a new instance.
Now play with these when all use the same stack ...
Have fun!

Code: Select all

local lc="/Users/admin/Applications/LiveCode Community 6.7.11.app"

on mouseUp
   get shell("open -n " & quote& lc & quote)
end mouseUp
shiftLock happens
