I want to use
but I need to check automatically that no
error occurred. Now unfortunately maxima
does not use the return value (which is
always 0, apparently completely un-bothered
about the execution of File) --- I consider
this as a bug?
Now how to do it otherwise?? Actually it seems
- communication to the outside world via setting
an environment variable does not work;
- so what remains is writing to some file
- HOWEVER how to trigger such an action???
The possibility to execute a file AND checking for errors
seems very basic to me, so I hope somebody can tell
me what to do here.
Thanks in any case!
