runscript Question

Been working on setting up my test driver machine, that will just sit over in the corner and execute scripts all day.

Is it possible to make a copy of the runscript alias/symlink in a folder on my PATH? I’d rather not add the entire eggplant app into PATH. My initial tests have shown this is not possible, but perhaps I’m doing something incorrectly?


Mac OS X is very particular about how applications are launched. I’m not certain that what you’re asking for is impossible, but I haven’t been able to make this work here either, after trying a number of permutations including hard links, aliases made in the Finder, etc. Sorry :frowning:

I’m not sure exactly what your intent is here, but maybe a slightly different approach would work? If you’re just trying to simplify command line calls, you could use the bash ‘alias’ command, for instance. This works for me:

alias runscript=/Applications/

Then you can just use ‘runscript’ instead of the full path…
