Does anyone have suggestions?
The problem is batch files do not handle I/O redirection like Unix-based
shell scripts. If you are using a recent release, you could try:
mhonarc.pl -scan -outdir 919mail >scan.txt
mhonarc -scan -outdir 919mail -stdout scan.txt
My setup is win98 and although I have 2 other linuxes connected via
ethernet Im using win98 because its just easier to work in.
Win98 easier to work in? Them fighting words :-)
Though, I am curious as to why.
