Bob, roll back, I got it to run. Just did the wrong download at the right of
the page, version 4.8. With 5.8 it works perfect!

Betreff: AW: AW: Runrev using Perl

Hello Bob, Linux in germany is not that wide spread at "standard users". It
is very popular in university sceens and "computer freaks". I tried your
picture chooser from your old site. Though I didn't get it to run yet - XP,
2.8.1(after including a path into the ini, the program just hangs and does
nothing) I got an idea how to communicate. Your exe just outputs a txt file,
which you read into runrev - quite easy!
Thank you, Tiemo

nice to meet you again. Interesting things you're doing there  :) 
I am not familiar with shell commands yet, nor perl, but how do you get a
result from the shell execution back into a runrev field "feedback"?

--------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Tiemo,

I do something similar with Rebol scripts or standalones. The easy way to
get results back is to delete any existing relevant output file on the HD
from Perl first, and after calling your Perl module to do its job, poll the
existence of its output file on the HD until it appears, and when it does,
put it into the RunRev field.

For an example of simple shell calls and this kind of polling, see my Linux
chooser widgets at http://www.howsoft.com/runrev/stacks.htm . The demo pack
you can download there is a standalone program, but there is a button you
can click on to see the coding for the shell calls and polling. Or if you
are using Windows, you can visit the old page (see the link at the top of
the page mentioned above) and see the coding in the "Choose File" and
"Choose Picture" buttons of the demo stack.

For an example of the "hybrid" use of Rev+Rebol, you might be interested in
downloading my "Spam Gobbler" program at http://www.howsoft.com/linux/ and
http://www.howsoft.com/linux/spamgobbler/ . But that's Linux again, which I
believe is quite popular in Germany, isn't it?

Bob
