• Command Shell Modifications..

    From Al DeRosa@1:267/157 to All on Thu Jul 29 09:43:21 2021
    Is there a tutorial for morons on how to modify the Command shells? I live in the Wiki and I am just a bit confused. What I am trying to do is add a couple of commands to a couple of the menus. Want to add MRC to the Chat menu and a couple of File Servers I hook up with to the File Menu, I got the idea of modifying default.src then compiling it with Baja, but I am a little lost on how to execute the js files from the menu. Like I said a Tutorial for morons (me). Any help or info would be much appreciated...

    Is there a tutorial for morons on how to modify the Command shells?

    Most command shells are written in Baja, so this would be the reference manual for that Baja language and compiler:
    http://synchro.net/docs/baja.html

    I live
    in the Wiki and I am just a bit confused. What I am trying to do is add a couple of commands to a couple of the menus. Want to add MRC to the Chat menu

    The chat menu (section) is not a command shell, it's implemented as a loadable module, currently in JavaScript: exec/chat_sec.js
    For modifying JavaScript modules, see: https://wiki.synchro.net/custom:javascript

    and a couple of File Servers I hook up with to the File Menu, I got the
    idea of modifying default.src then compiling it with Baja, but I am a little lost on how to execute the js files from the menu. Like I said a Tutorial for morons (me). Any help or info would be much appreciated...

    To execute any JS file from a Baja, use the EXEC_BIN function. There are several examples of this in exec/default.src. In fact, this is how the chat module is execute:
    exec_bin chat_sec

    As expected, worked like a charm.. Got it setup and working. This board is slowly taking shape.. :)
