[code, result] = system(command)
Executes an operating system command in the current working directory. If you call this function in the LabVIEW Run-Time Engine, LabVIEW executes the command in the directory where you installed the stand-alone application or shared library. This function is similar to the System Exec VI.
|command||Specifies the command you want to execute. command is a string. Before continuing execution, LabVIEW waits for the operating system to finish executing the command. To direct LabVIEW not to wait for the operating system to finish executing the command, include & at the end of the command string.|
|code||Indicates whether the command was successful. code is an integer. This function returns 0 if the command succeeds. Otherwise, this function returns a non-zero integer.|
|result||Returns the output string of the command.|
The following table lists the support characteristics of this function.
|Supported in the LabVIEW Run-Time Engine||Yes|
