Shell object

    Apr 25 2006 | 5:46 pm
    I'm trying to start an application using the shell object. To start this application in the terminal window, it looks like this:
    ben-harveys-powerbook-g4-12:~ benharvey$ cd /Volumes/motion ben-harveys-powerbook-g4-12:/Volumes/motion benharvey$ chmod 777 motion ben-harveys-powerbook-g4-12:/Volumes/motion benharvey$ ./motion powerbook 100000
    Could anyone please let me know what messages to send to the shell object in max/msp to do this?
    Thanks very much,

      Did you try that ?
      /Volumes/motion/motion powerbook 100000
      Why do you have to change the permission each time you want to lunch the application?

      My advice would be to write a bash script that does this. I think the shell object can only execute single commands. If you made a script, you can probably get around that limitation.
