Re: Run, RunThrough on OSX?


Sir:

The Run help says that on most operating systems you will get the text 
back, but not all.  For example if you do this on OSX Run["/bin/date > 
/tmp/x"] you will find /tmp/x contains the date, so the command did 
run.  So perhaps what you want to do is first run your command, then 
read in a file containing the result.
