Re: I hate shell

And rc being a string, would return the output of the command or the error text if it fails. And how would the user differentiate between those two options?

Re: I hate shell

Hello to a very old post....

Maybe we just need a new SHELL option. Ideally your should be able to:

dim rc as string
rc = shell("dir /")

And rc being a string, would return the output of the command or the error text if it fails.

Would really be much better!

Yes! Absolutely. Linux is very good at user permissions. Quite unlike Windows.

Hi srvaldez,
