• BAJA stub to load a JavaScript command shell/passing globals

    From Khelair@VERT to All on Wed Jul 16 10:13:31 2014
    I'm going by some of the old wiki documentation and working on a command shell in JavaScript that is going to be loaded by a small BAJA stub. Of course, I'm being impatient after digging through the BAJA manual for ten minutes; I don't really want to sit and have to learn everything that I don't think I'm really going to get a chance to use in that language, as things stand right now.
    Can anybody tell me whether or not a variable declared with !global is going to be accessible through the JavaScript shell that I load, or would I need to pass via other means? I actually don't really NEED this feature, but I'm trying to do a few things the right way, as far as I see it.
    TIA

    This need not feel so strange; pay attention to Lady

    No, but if you look at http://synchro.net/docs/jsobs.html, you'll find most of those global Baja variables have a JS equivalent.
