Title: Command Line Plugin Help
Post by: Cool Javelin on 09 06 2014, 17:29:24
I would like to send a text message from a DOS batch file in WinXP. I see there is a command-line plugin, and I assume I might be able to send the message using it, but there is no documentation telling me how to use it, or really, what it can do.

Does anyone have any experience using the command-line plugin, and can someone hemp me use it?

Thanks, Mark.

Yes, You need to install cmdline.dll and you need MimCmd.exe from the plugin download. MimCmd.exe can be placed anywhere. Try using "MimCmd.exe help" to get an overview.

Thanks, Wishmaster:

This is exactly what I want.

Now for a detail.

I can send several single lines in rapid succession, but a single multiple line message would be better.

In real Miranda, I can do a Shift Enter to enter a newline actually in the message, then send using the normal Enter.

Is there a way to do that using the MimCmd device?

Thanks. Mark.

Right now you cannot. There is also a request on UserVoice (https://miranda-ng.uservoice.com/forums/250387-general/suggestions/6014552-add-line-break-on-cmdline-message) for that. Maybe I will implement handling "\r\n" as a new line.

or add "message2 <contact>" which reads stdin for input... this command needs to be added to MimCmd as it can be then passed to the "message" command (since we pass parameters directly, they can include new line)

This way it would work more like *NIX tools such as sendmail...

It hast been implemented by Robyer in r9660 (http://trac.miranda-ng.org/changeset/9660), now you can use "\n" for a new line.
