VRF- Execute Program (UNIX) question

Ken,

In Unix you can execute multiple commands separated by semicolons.  This is
a shell feature so you will need to select a shell (all support this basic
feature).  For example:

     cd /tmp ; ls xyz.*

Hope this helps,
Tom Sanders

Subject: VRF- Execute Program (UNIX) question


    

     All,
    
     Is there a way to define the "working directory" when using the
     Execute Program(UNIX) command?  Execute Program(PC) allows the working
     directory to be defined.
    
     Part of the problem I am having is how a program I have been given
     that I need to call from Vee needs to reference a file to know where
     to get other data files from.  If I do not start Vee from the same
     directory as this data file is, the program can not find the data
     file.
    
     How do you define what directory Vee itself will use as a "working
     directory",  or does it just the directory it is started from as a
     working directory?
    
    
     Thanks,
    
     Ken
