CMD file output

3 posts in this topic

cwRsync script I'm working on creates a "temp.cmd" file on the fly in the cwRsync directory.

The CMD file runs fine and performs the Rsync tasks just fine, however I'm unable to see or capture the output text. I get a maximized black Command prompt window, it's totally empty however (no prompt).

Local $cmdout = RunWait("C:\Program Files\cwRsync\temp.cmd", "C:\Program Files\cwRsync", @SW_MAXIMIZE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)
Local $output
    While 1
        $output &= StdoutRead($cmdout)
        If @error Then ExitLoop
        $output &= StderrRead($cmdout)
        If @error Then ExitLoop
    Wend
MsgBox(0, "test", $output)

I'd like to capture Rsyncs output data, for creating log files.

Anybody any suggestions?

You can't use StdOutRead() with RunWait(), it's only available in Run(). See the Run example in the help file.

Thanks! Didn't see the $RUN_CREATE_NEW_CONSOLE flag at all.

However I'm able to see the output data now, using RunWait with the $RUN_CREATE_NEW_CONSOLE flag set; I am unable to capture the output text with RunWait?

So took a look at Run and got it to work this way:

;--->>> Run CMD
    Local $cmd = Run($PATHwd_cwrsync&$tmpfile, $PATHwd_cwrsync, @SW_MAXIMIZE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)
    ;<<<--- Run CMD


    ;--->>> Read from child's STDOUT
    Local $data
    While 1
        $data &= StdoutRead($cmd)
        If @error Then ExitLoop
        $data &= StderrRead($cmd)
        If @error Then ExitLoop
    Wend
    MsgBox(0, "Debug", $data)
    ;<<<--- Read from child's STDOUT

One small drawback, with the flags $STDERR_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD set, I don't see the data in realtime in the command prompt window (which does show without those flags set, however without them I'm unable to capture output + halt script till operation has finished). Is there a way I could both capture the output text and view it in de command prompt window?
