The secret login script command

Over in the ZPM group I noticed someone posting using the REGREAD
command and thought it had to be external and wouldn't it be nice if it
was built-in. Looking further, seems this has been built into the login
script for many YEARS now!!

Can I suggest here that it should be added to the docs? Or would the
enhancement request be the way to go?

It has been suggested in these forums in the past that regread be added
to the doc, but it obviously remained a secret (not the closely guarded
type, more like the secure-through-obscurity or undocumented feature type).

Cheers
GM

Re: The secret login script command

Graham,

Note that there are at least 2 TIDs documentating the command:

http://www.novell.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&sliceId=&externalId=10022325
http://www.novell.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&sliceId=&externalId=10068114

I will however ask Novell to update the documentation as well.

Re: The secret login script command

Graham,

For more complex string handling client 4.91 SP1 and above should be
able to handle it...

REGREAD command in login script does not handle double quotes " "

Re: The secret login script command

Regarding REGREAD and documentation, this is important info:
"Regread cannot process binary or dword values"
