Quickly examining the code after an absence of many years and with fresh eyes, it looks to me like this object needs some serious love. I'll try to find some time to do a major rewrite in the coming weeks. 'top' is a special case because it's an interactive command and not a simple "read" operation. But using some of the advanced technologies in the uci chess object, in particular pseudoterminals, it should be possible to support that and more. Let's see how it goes.
seems that if i open ssh firstname.lastname@example.org "omxplayer /home/pi/Desktop/pd_player/error/error3.mov" for example then any other message wont work while clip is playing.. not only ssh -l pi 192.168.1.85 "killall omxplayer.bin"
thanks... but seems that problem is between my ears.. if i open this command in terminal.. even then i cant kill it from the same window..
is there option to open 2 shell objects like 2 different terminal windows?
Well... you could have 2 copies of the shell object. Or... you could put an '&' at the end of your command to put it into the background on launch. Then shell won't block for the next command. In theory, not tested.
Thank you for the fantastic object, it works fine except that I have an issue with pstoedit (http://www.pstoedit.net) the command for running that via Mac terminal is: pstoedit -f hpgl ~/Documents/test.pdf > ~/Documents/output1.hpgl But when I try doing this with shell it outputs an empty .hpgl file, is there anyway I can fix that?
I need to do a command « minimize patch » in Max Msp
I look and I do not find in Max
I think it’s possible to command « minimize patch » with object shell
But I don’t understand script message for shell?
Is there any plan to port the shell object for windows users now? I'm developing on Mac, in particular a library using shell to run LISP code with SBCL and displaying the results with the bach library. Since SBCL is available on Windows as well, a bridge would be really welcome... :)
So I have been using a combination of shell object and MacOS Automator to load Max on boot, and to Restart show machine if any components aren't working correctly (monitored in various ways). This was all nice and happy, until the latest iteration now forces us to use a Windows 10 machine!! Any ideas?
Anyone got this sort of automation (close / max / restart machine on condition) happening with Windows?
Does somebody has a copy of the former shell.mxo that works with Max 6? I use an old Macmini with osx Snow Leopard to work within an exhibition, and plan to display HD videos by using Quicktime rather than jit.qt.movie which cannot give a good fluent rendering. Thanks in advance. Charles.
Hi Jeremy, thank you for updating the shell-object. I need to use telnet via max, is there a way to do it with the shell object? I tried to send "telnet 192.168.1.1" to connect with the client , but it didnt worked out.
I'm trying to use the [shell] object to send a simple command line to the terminal in order to pass an MQTT signal (Mac user here). I did it through Mosquitto in terminal, and in Node-Red (which can communicate with Max nicely with UDP), works like a charm, but I would like to be able to do it right from the shell object.
The command line is extremely simple, something like this:
mosquitto_p -t topic/exemple -m Hello
This runs perfectly from the terminal, but I can't send it remotely from the shell object, which is weird.
I already used the shell in the past, with success, but here it doesn't work.
Something I'm forgetting ?
Thank you guys,
