Re: sub window for shell script

For getting the output of the shell script - you might want to look at "popen"

(You may need to popen("/bin/sh scriptname","r") if its a shell script.

I have an app with has a 'console window' for debugging purposes, something 
like :

A4GL_create_console (void)
  GtkWidget *scroll;

  console = (GtkWindow *) gtk_window_new (GTK_WINDOW_TOPLEVEL);
  scroll = gtk_scrolled_window_new (NULL, NULL);

  gtk_scrolled_window_set_policy (GTK_SCROLLED_WINDOW (scroll),
                                  GTK_POLICY_AUTOMATIC, GTK_POLICY_AUTOMATIC);

  gtk_widget_show (scroll);

  console_list = gtk_clist_new (1);     /* 1 column for now.... */

  gtk_clist_set_selection_mode (GTK_CLIST (console_list),
  gtk_clist_set_shadow_type (GTK_CLIST (console_list), GTK_SHADOW_IN);

  gtk_container_add (GTK_CONTAINER (scroll), console_list);
  gtk_container_add (GTK_CONTAINER (console), scroll);
  gtk_widget_show (console_list);
  gtk_window_set_title (console, "4GL Console");

  gdk_window_set_functions ((GdkWindow *) console,
                            GDK_FUNC_RESIZE + GDK_FUNC_MOVE +
                            GDK_FUNC_MINIMIZE + GDK_FUNC_MAXIMIZE);

And support functions :

 * Append a string to the console list widget.
A4GL_add_to_console (char *s)
  gtk_clist_append (GTK_CLIST (console_list), &s);

 * Clear the data showed n the console.
A4GL_clear_console (char *s)
  gtk_clist_clear (GTK_CLIST (console_list));

This may be complete bunk - but it works for my app..

Should I use GdkWindow?  If so, how do I go about calling the shell script?
