System Feature startup Purpose The default script executed by biterScripting each time upon invocation Aliases None. Syntax Syntax for the script command applies. The startup script is stored in file C:/Scripts/startup.txt Arguments None. Stream Input Stream for the script command applies. Stream Output Stream for the script command applies. Stream Error Stream for the script command applies. Description Each time biterScripting is invoked, the first thing it does is to execute the startup script stored in the file name specified above. The startup script is executed in both interactive and batch (non-interactive) modes. You can edit the startup script to include commands that you want biterScripting to execute each time upon startup. These commands, typically, include the common tasks you want performed, such as the following. - Change the current directory to a specific directory. - Declare, and set values of, the commonly used global variables. - Declare the commonly used global functions. - Any kind of logging, using the echo or echo -e command, you want performed. The startup script file is created when biterscripting is installed. You can use any text editor of your choice to edit the startup script file. The startup script can call other (sub-)scripts. If the size of your startup script is extensive, it is recommended that it be organized in terms of smaller, easier to manage, sub-scripts. Restrictions If you declare variables or functions in the startup script, be sure to make them global (with -g option). Otherwise, they will be treated as local to the script, and will NOT be available outside of the startup script. Valid Examples The following are typical commands in the startup script file. # Go to the directory you use the most. ccd "C:/My Project" # Declare variables you use commonly. var -g str fileName set $fileName = "My File.html" # Declare functions you commonly use. function -g int LineCount # This function counts lines in all your source code files (for example). . ... return ... . end Invalid Examples See help pages on individual command.
