In Topic: submitting a pro-iv job from cron

28 March 2002 - 02:04 PM

Attached is a document I used as a slide during a presentation on running a Pro-IV screen from cron. It is in word97 format. I believe it will illustrate exactly how to do what you are trying to do. I purposefully made it explicit to running MRP, but the principles apply to any Pro-IV screen you want to run.

Hope this helps.

In Topic: Executing Pro Iv function from Unix Shell Script

24 August 2001 - 12:33 PM

Attached is a Word document I created in 1997 to present at the Glovia User Group. It details how to run MRP in Glovia from a Unix Shell script. I still use the same procedure to schedule any Pro-IV function I want to automate. Basically you run the pro MDC SYS (or whatever login you choose) and redirect the stdin using the unix redirector '<<' (see the man page for your favorite shell for an in depth discussion). Now that I have a shell script I can execute that from cron which is still my favorite scheduler due to the awesome power and simpleness (I'm quite simple-minded).

Just thought I'd throw this out there as an option.

I am exploring Linux with my first installation now. I just read about Wine yesterday. I will try it and report back here if I get it to work.
