Len Jacobson Posted January 22, 2012 Report Share Posted January 22, 2012 I have a line of code that invokes the 'system()' function, and the command passed to the 'system()' function is the 'tar' command. This code works perfectly when I run it on my (Linux) production server; when I run it on the 'Uniform Server', I get an empty file as its output. Can anyone tell me why this doesn't work and if there is a way to make it work? Thank you very much. (This addendum I am adding several hours later.) My question is ridiculous. I realized shortly after posting my question (when I was no longer at home near my computer) that the 'system()' command can only execute Windows commands. Since 'tar' is not a Windows command, there is no way my code could work on the Uniform Server. Sorry for bothering people with this query.
