• Son of a Batch(file)

    From Mindless Automaton@VERT/ELDRITCH to DOVE-Net.Programming_(Jav on Friday, March 09, 2007 11:42:00
    I scripted up my maintenance batch file into a js file. :o

    I use this line:

    system.exec(bredir + "BRE PLANETARY");

    However, I think a lot of these doors need to be executed
    in their installed directory. So I guess I'd need to do
    something like:

    system.exec("cd " + bredir; "BRE PLANETARY");

    so it changes to the game directory and then executes?

    Anyhow, what, if there is any, is the correct way to stack
    commands in system.exec?

    Ie. system.exec(command1;command2;etc.); ?
    or: system.exec("cd " + bredir + "\nBRE PLANETARY");
    Or am I dreaming and should stick with a regular batch file?

    I'll have to try \n and see..

    Thanks,

    Windows uses && to "stack" command in a single command-line. You'd probably be better off using a timed event and specifying the correct Startup Directory in the configuration of that event in SCFG.
