$command = 'stupid'

$ret = _dos($command)

where ret would = Bad Command or something

or

$command = 'cd ..'

$ret = _dos($command)

where ret would = the new dir your in...

StdOutRead() will read output from a process.

StdInWrite() will write input to a process

StdErrRead() will read error a StdErr stream from a process

You're looking at StdOutRead

That returns all of the output, the other ones will return the exit code, its process handle, or something else...i don't remember off hand.

If you want to ping something though, and want to see the detailed results (i.e. the dos window), that's when you'll use the stdoutread() function.


Writing AutoIt scripts since
_DateAdd("d", -2, _NowCalcDate())
