FunnelWeb Reference Manual

9.13 Fw

The fw command allows FunnelWeb proper to be invoked from a shell script. The syntax is almost identical to the syntax with which FunnelWeb is invoked from the operating system.

Syntax  : fw = "fw" s ordinary_funnelweb_command_line
Examples: fw sloth +t +d
          fw -l walrus

Some important points about this fw command are:

  • Options are inherited from the default shell options.
  • The F (input file option) must be turned on.
  • The K, H, and X options must be turned off.
  • The J option must be turned off.
  • The options specified in a fw command do not affect the default shell options.
  • This command performs no action in the OpenVMS version of FunnelWeb.
