headless Slick-C
« on: May 16, 2008, 04:05:34 pm »
I've been pretty impressed with the power of Slick-C thus far and the ability to write extremely powerful text-editing macros quickly. I was wondering if there was any way to run slick-c commands in a headless mode from the command line. I wouldn't mind writing certain batch scripts or replacing a couple of my perl tools with some slick-c stuff in the future. Is this possible?

Thanks,
Rob

Yes, have a look in the help 'Slick-C® Macro Programming Guide>Four Ways to Use Slick-C®>Batch Macros' and 'Appendix> Invocation Options' and maybe 'Slick-C® Macro Programming Guide>Command Line Interface' etc.
Basically you can write a batch macro module and run it with 'vs -p <batch_macro>.e [args]' quite similar to other script language interpreters.
