RE: Problem with post-commit hook script

Thanks for those who replied. It seems my EXE stub _was_ being called after
all, but was confused about paths. At least as confused as I was :-)

It all works works now.

If anyones interested heres the stub I put together.


WinShellExec.exe renamed to post-commit.exe:

// WinShellExec
// This program executes the program/script in the file X.command
// where X.exe is the name of this program
// Command should not include any parameters, but parameters
// used with X.command will be passed on.

#include <iostream>

#include <istream>
#include <fstream>

#include <string>

#include <windows.h>

int main( int argc, char* argv[] )
        std::string commandfile = argv[0];

        // Work out name of command file
        if ( std::string::npos == commandfile.find_last_of( '.' ) ) return
        commandfile.erase( commandfile.find_last_of( '.' ) );
        commandfile.append( ".command" );

        std::ifstream file( commandfile.c_str() );
        if ( !file ) return -1;

        std::string commandtext;

        // don't like the .readline() method so do this instead
        while ( true )
                std::string word;
                file >> word;
                if ( file.eof() ) break;
                if ( !commandtext.empty() ) commandtext += " ";
                commandtext += word;

        // Args
        std::string args;
        for ( int i=1; i<argc; i++ )
                if ( !args.empty() ) args += " ";
                args.append( argv[i] );

        ShellExecute( NULL, "open", commandtext.c_str(), args.c_str(), NULL,
        return 0;

I guess it's possible it works on XP, but not on 2k; either that, or
apr_create_process with APR_PROGRAM or APR_PROGRAM_PATH has been fixed
since the last time I tried this. It used to be that for .cmd or .bat
scripts, you needed APR_SHELLCMD.
