system_help
« on: July 19, 2018, 11:48:38 AM »
system_help seems to be able to do a lot of things. Start email client, start a spread sheet, etc. Can it display an image? I tried system_help "[wdx]/tmp/image001.bmp" and it did nothing.

Any other ideas to fire up the default program for a file on the windows machine?

I found the answer. Don't include the [wdx] portion of the name.
The correct syntax is:
System_help "/tmp/image001.bmp"

Yes, to clarify the SYSTEM_HELP always invokes the workstations OS to assist in the opening of the file thus the file must reside on the workstation.

This is done and any graphical application the system has to launch to service/open the file would need to run on the workstation.
