Description

Allow "!" to execute Operating System (OS) commands in Procs and Paragraphs 


Previous Release Behavior

For Procs, the only way to run an OS command is to use the PU to submit the command: 

001 PQ
002 C Windows
003 Hdir > dir.out
004 PU

001 PQ
002 C Linux
003 Hps > ps.out
004 PU

There is currently no mechanism to be able to run OS commands in Paragraphs 


Current Release Behavior

You can now prepend a "!" to the command: 

001 PQ
002 C Windows
003 H!dir > dir.out
004 P

001 PQ
002 C Linux
003 H!ps > ps.out
004 P

001 PA
002 * Windows
003 !dir > dir.out

001 PA
002 * Linux
003 !ps > ps.out

This functionality is dependent on execute_exclamation = true configuration setting in Config_EMULATE. This setting is in the D3 emulation by default.
