( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Hi Ken,

Thanks so much for your fast reply. Escaping the back slashes in the format option worked! The output using system does the format properly now. Code:
$output = system("cleartool lsco -r -brt p_JOESDRUGS_DT_Int -fmt \"%En +\\t%u\\n\"");

The zero is still at the end, but I can always chop that off. Output:

.\EDC_Export\Test_file2.txt mkjohnson .\EDC_Export\Test_file3.txt mkjohnson 0

However, I still haven't solved the first issue. I tried your advice, and this solves the problem of recognizing the content of $stream, but the command fails. I also tried it with including the double quotes escaped:

$output = system('cleartool', 'lsco', '-r', '-brt', $stream, '-fmt', ' +\"%En\\t%u\\n\"');

But that still fails. However, a different failure, so I'm getting closer. It's a cleartool error and it reveals it can read $stream. Output:

cleartool: Warning: Type not found: "p_JOESDRUGS_DT_Int". 0

So I am getting closer. I will try playing around with this combination, but any further advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again.
