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
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.
