Running plink with user input interaction from

P: 7
Hi there,

I am trying to run a .sh file with plink from

I am now able to run the .sh on throught plink but i have a problem because the .sh script require user input:
The .sh is prompting a few question and require user to input y/n to proceed.

I am trying plink.standardinput.writeline("y") but it looks like this input is not feed to the .sh script but rather to the plink session after the .sh script ended.

Any idea about this or is there any other way for this?

Try creating an input file for your shell script, then execute the shell-script using input redirecton to read the file.

Unfortunately I don't have VB at the moment, but something like this:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. /...path.../plink < /...path.../in-file
Hopefully that helps,

Thank you for your recommendation but I actually need to execute the shell-script first. Then depend on user to key-in y or n after they confirm the result.

Any other idea to do this?
