Description

This is a replacement for the built-in shell command that was removed from Unity 1.6.1. It is based on the original C# source of the Boo internals in the Boo project.

Usage

To use it place Shell.js into your project and add an "import Shell;" at the top of your code. Then use it the same way as you used the old shell function:

import Shell;
 
var output_of_ls = shell("ls", "-l");

JavaScript - Shell.js

import System.Diagnostics;
 
static function shellp(filename : String, arguments : String) : Process  {
    var p = new Process();
    p.StartInfo.Arguments = arguments;
    p.StartInfo.CreateNoWindow = true;
    p.StartInfo.UseShellExecute = false;
    p.StartInfo.RedirectStandardOutput = true;
    p.StartInfo.RedirectStandardInput = true;
    p.StartInfo.RedirectStandardError = true;
    p.StartInfo.FileName = filename;
    p.Start();
    return p;
}
 
static function shell( filename : String, arguments : String) : String {
    var p = shellp(filename, arguments);
    var output = p.StandardOutput.ReadToEnd();
    p.WaitForExit();
    return output;
}
