• ;EXECing *MODULES

    From Angus Mcleod@VERT to Digital Man on Mon Mar 25 22:06:00 2002
    I was trying to ;EXEC a *MODULE that I'd just written. The SBBS "CLI"
    forces all input UPPERcase, so if you write "module.src" and compile it to "module.bin", when you ;EXEC it, you get an error saying it can't file "MODULE.bin".

    I them symlink the two

    ln -s module.bin MODULE.bin

    which gets around the error, but perhaps a more dainty solution can be devised?

    It's the default shell that's doing the uppercase conversion. Either modify the shell, or just type ";EXEC<CR>" - it'll then prompt for the system password, then the command-line (which allows anycase).

    Hey, cool. I didn't know you could do that.

    Sure, just modify exec/default.src.
