Using Revolution to wrap interactive Unix commands?

Post by brumeister » Fri Jul 21, 2006 9:32 pm

Hi Folks,

I've dug through the examples and searched the forums, but I can't find any references to examples of using a long running, interactive shell script from within Revolution.

Has anyone done something like this where the command starts and the tool expects input from the user at particular situations (i.e. execute an ftp session with a GUI interface)?

I'm interested in what Revolution offers otherwise, but need interactive shell capabilities to do what we're trying to accomplish.
