[ os_process->read ]


[OS_Process->Read] reads any available data from the standard output of the native process and returns a byte stream. This method accepts two parameters. The first specifies the maximum number of bytes of data to retrieve. The method will return all available data up to that number of bytes. By default all available data will be retrieved. A -Timeout parameter specifies the time in seconds which the method should wait for output to become available. If no data is available before the read times out then an empty byte stream is returned.

No character set translation is performed on the output of this method. A raw byte stream is always returned.

  • Syntax
local(myProcess = OS_Process('/bin/cat'))
#myProcess->Write('This is a test\n')
