Robert did a better explanation but of the same thing

Code: Select all
// returns result!

// no result, not even writing a file...
application.output(application.executeProgram('/bin/sh', ['/Users/robert/']));

The key points being
a) Servoy would not run the bash script direct - that would be ideal
b) I could not add the symlink into /usr/bin I had to first remove the block. I could have written the the bash into usr/bin but wanted to keep the client files separate.

I guess they (apple) are trying to prevents you writing some script into a folder and throwing a symlink into the bin to trigger system wide scripts remotely or something ...

Either way the fix worked and was handy
