How to use unix command on Windows?

Recommended Posts

I am trying to run a shell script on Windows as part of an output pipeline, but not sure how to use the 'unix' command so that it actually works.

Suppose I am using the command:

md "c:\snake"

Which works fine in the command prompt, but when I add it as a 'Pre-Render Script' like this:

unix md "c:\snake"

It doesn't work.

What am I missing? My understanding from the documentation was that the unix command in HScript would send the following text to the system command prompt...

I'm no expert but doesn't umkdir logically stand for Unix Make Dir ? just looking around in that help link, is all.

You might well be right, but I was actually just using that as an example. One of the things I'm actually trying to do is run ffmpeg. The command I have works fine in the Windows command prompt, but does nothing when trying to do it using 'unix' in HScript. What I'm looking for is a generalised way to send commands to the command line... I presume there's some way to do that, but I can't figure out the syntax...
