Q: I am trying to use the RML command LL to load a log using the following line:
LL 3 logname_%A!
Can wildcards be used with this RML command? It doesn't seem to work for me.
A: You can use wildcards by running an external script. Here is an example script:
#!/bin/sh NOWDATE=$(date +%d_%m_%Y) rmlsend LL\ 1\ $NOWDATE\! exit 0
You then run the script by running the following RML command in a macro, where path is the path to the script.
Make sure to make the script executable, otherwise it will not run. You can do that with the command:
chmod +x path/script.sh
