• php exec('jsexec')

    From Mortifis@VERT/EPHRAM to All on Fri Jun 12 07:04:00 2020
    I have a php script that calls exec('/sbbs/exec/jsexec blah blah blah', $result); but it does not return any result ... even exec('/sbbs/exec/jsexec -v', $result); does return a result ... but exec('ls -ln /sbbs/exec/jsexec'); does, as do other system commands ... possible jsexec is doing something to stdout?

    Thanks

    You would to execute a script that writes to stdout (e.g. with "write", "writeln" methods). The status output of jsexec won't be captured by your php script since jsexec knows it's not being run from a console, it redirects status messages to /dev/null.

    my test php script gets no $response :

    <?php
    exec('/sbbs/exec/jsexec mytest.js "Hello World"', $response);

    foreach($response as $key => $value) {
    echo "key $key - value $value<br>";
    }



    mytest.js:

    load("sbbsdefs.js");

    function dump_objs(obj) {
    Object.keys(obj).forEach(function (e) {
    writeln( e + ': ' + JSON.stringify(obj[e]));
    });
    }

    if(!argv[0])
    writeln('No argumants ... aborting ');
    else
    dump_objs(argv);

    any ideas?

    Nope, no ideas. I never tried executing jsexec from PHP.

    guess writing to a file and reading it back will have to do, I'll play with it and see. Thanks Digital Man, I appreciate the reply.
