get Command line scripting results!

Hey all,

i have a web application that at a given point i make this application execute a batch file, this batch file contains commands executed in command line to do specific actions.
as i do execute that batch file programmatically, i'm looking for a way to read the result of executing these commands......

e.g. if you write "C:\>hhhshs" the result would be "hhhshs is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file"

if you write "C:\>ipconfig" the result woul be sth else.

what i want is a way how to read these results programmatically!! anyone can help??

I think you should be able to just check return value of Process.Start? I think it will return false if the process cannot be started.

The error message you're referring to will only appear in a command shell. So to get this from Process.Start, you'd have to wrap your process in a call to cmd.exe. But that's totally unecessary :)

So the process starts alright but fail somewhere along the way, right? If the program (that you're trying to launch) is written correctly, you should be able to get the exit code of the application. Typically 0 means a successful run, while any other code can be used to signal different errors that has occurred. But that's no law, so you need to check how that specific program behaves first. A second option you have (if exit code does not work) is to capture the output of the program, and try to parse stuff from there. But this is to be used only as a last resort.

Best thing is if you can check (and possibly re-program) the exe you're trying to start so that it makes use of exit codes. In a console app, that's the value returned from the main function. In a windows app, I don't know, but I guess it's the same.

trying to get line-by-line output of a command pipe in perl
Hello; I'm trying to obtain line-by-line output from a command pipe in perl.

ODBC gets error when CTLIB gets results
Good Day: We have a test and prod sybase v11.x server. I can make a call to the test machine OK with ODBC. ex: exec sp_name null, '123', 'XYZ', null I execute this with SQLExecDirect() This call causes execution of several other stored procedures, and a result set is returned. On the prod machine the call fails complaining about the parameters to a lower level sp. Oddly enough the same query runs fine in a non-ODBC tool on prod or test. Are there any WS or Server ODBC config parameters that would lead to this sort of thing? I know this is a bit va...
