Setting Up a Different Folder for eFORMz PCL Files in a UNIX Environment

Last Updated on by

The Director Toolkit’s post-processing can be used to set up a different folder for the final destination of eFORMz PCL files in a UNIX environment. IFS files should be handled with shell scripts. The one line contents of this shell script handle the renaming of any number of files in the /minisoft/input/from directory.

Listed below, there is the Director External Command, the script file contents, a screenshot of the Director Toolkit setting, and a short log fragment of this process in action.

QSH CMD('/minisoft/rename_pcl.sh')
$ cat /minisoft/rename_pcl.sh
cd /minisoft/input/from; for file in *.tmp; do base=`basename "$file" tmp`; mv "$file" "$base"pcl; done

QSH-CMD
