stdout

Some execution steps (such as those that run shell commands) return standard output. For example, the shell command dir (on Windows) returns a list of directories.

 

When a step returns a result, FlowForce Server automatically assigns to it the generic type result. With the stdout function, you can get access to the standard output of result, as follows:

 

stdout(result)

 

where result is the value returned by some execution step.

 

This function fails if result does not provide standard output.

 

Signature

stdout(result:result) -> stream

The result of the step whose standard error you want to get.
