• Import variables into bash script

    From niter3@46:1/108 to All on Wednesday, July 26, 2017 10:06:36
    Can somebody tell me how to import the mystic variables into a bash script.
    So I can pull the handle and other information in a script.

    Most likely you'll have to use mpl to push the variables you want as commandline parameters.

    Any examples?

    Ignore my message regarding an example.

    I ended up putting a MPS together that writes the username to a file. Then within my bash script I read in the file.

    Cool, ya that should do the trick, otherwise the other way would be to use the MCI Menu code stuff to call out a DOOR from MPL, then pass the command line parameters in the door string.. but I don't have any examples since i don't
    run mystic and haven't touched MPL since 2004.. hehe
