• Mystic -X MPL Command

    From zharvek@46:1/118 to g00r00 on Friday, July 06, 2018 12:57:50
    I have a very old setup I am working on and would like to know if there is anyway to have Mystic not hangup/close the socket after running a MPL using
    -X -U -P and -TID# from the command line.

    I suppose it would be close to running a standalone MPL as a sort of door, although that's not what I am doing, but it would be the same.

    At the moment the MPL runs, data is set across the socket and it all works. When I exit the MPL, it does not exit and leave the socket alone, it kills
    the socket for me. Something I would like to avoid in this situation.

    I understand I am probably abusing this -X function as it was not written to
    do this, but if there is a way I would love to know as it would save me tons
    of time. If anyone has any ideas I'll try them.

    Thanks.

    Yes, you are using it in probably an unintended way. :)

    I am not opposed to adding something that could keep the socket safe, but I would have to look at the code to be sure that its feasible to do without major code change.

    I can't say for sure if its easy to do or not, if its a simple implementation then I would do it for sure.
