MMScript

Trigger and schedule scripts


Introduction

MMScript is a “Mighty Mini” plug-in for triggering and scheduling scripts. With this plug-in, you can create any number of “Script Events” for running scripts immediately, at any point in the future, or repeatedly on any interval. The plug-in also allows you to call a script when the user has been idle for any specified amount of time.

New to MMScript 1.1 is the ability to do shell scripting. With the new ShellExecute function, you can run any unix commands on Mac OS® X or any DOS commands on Windows. This opens up many possibilities like file manipulation, system information gathering, text processing, and more. Anything you can run in the shell can be run with this function and the results will be returned to you for further processing within FileMaker Pro.
