View Full Version : io.popen supported? Trying to read messages of cmd-commands

Hello

I'm actually trying to read back the messages of the cmd-version of cdburnerxp.

I read that there's a way to get the status messages in the cmd-window when starting via os.execute, but that requires io.popen - which seems unsupported by the lua version in Girder.

Has anybody experience in firing programs via command line and reading back their output?

I want to visualize the percentage values while erasing or burning a disc via cdbxpcmd.exe.


Thank you,
Christian

No ideas?

It was great if somebody had experience with reading back output of Command Line Commands and was willing to share it with me.

Thanks in advance,

Christian
