I have a a simple GUI with
1. TEXT AREA
2. BUTTON

when I push the button, the program runs a simple UNIX command (for example, "who" or "ls")
I need to echo the results of that command to the text area.

I don't want to do this by redirection to a file ("ls > outputfile") and then opening the file for the textarea.

I want to do this in real time, if possible (For example, if the unix command is a long "grep", then the results would scroll on the text area.

is this possible to do???

By the way, I am using JAVA NATIVE to run the unix commands ('C' system call)

Hi, happyloman .... you can avoid duplicate and multiple entries, which cost you extra points, by using our "reload" button rather than your Browser controls such as F5/Refresh, CTRL+F5 Server Refresh or the back button.

Also, the experts here were trying to help you in terms of letting you know you have multiples of the same question.  I will refund this one to you and changes this grade to an A.  I see you already received help from Ovi in the other question and awarded it.

If you need more such help, comment and I'll return when I can.  Or post a zero pont question in Community Support.

Thanks, CJ, for letting me know.
