if someone has fun with this question, I would appreciate an answer.
I creat a named pipe in a terminal window and start a simple listener loop:
mknod listener p
read line <listener
In a second terminal window (same working directory) sending from pil
repl commands to listener works:
==pil interactive works==
: (out "listener" (print 'tput "clear"))
: (out "listener" (print 'tput "cup" 3 15))
: (out "listener" (print 'echo "hey"))
==>First terminal screen will be cleared and word 'hey' is written on
third line starting in column 15
But why do these 3 lines not work, when calling as hey.l file:
==call as pil script does not work==
bash:> pil hey.l
== hey.l ==
(out "listener" (print 'tput "clear"))
(out "listener" (print 'tput "cup" 3 15))
(out "listener" (print 'echo "hey"))
==>I do get ambiguous results, sometimes it looks like the cursor move
will take place, but no word appears.
I looked into the rosetta examples and pil docs and more, but I can't
get this work.
Greetings and thank you in advance
