Author Topic: HOWTO remote control Seamonkey and other spawn of moz  (Read 2638 times)

Domine, exaudi vocem meam

« on: September 15, 2006, 07:19:16 pm »

the functionality described in the above webpage applies to any moz-based browser, afaik, and is more or less self-explanatory. but for demonstration:



if $SEAMONKEY_PATH -remote 'ping()' &> /dev/null; then
  exec $SEAMONKEY_PATH -remote "openURL($1,new-tab)"

This example script checks if an instance of Seamonkey is running with the remote ping() function. If so, it opens a new tab in this running process with openURL(someURL,new-tab). Otherwise, it initiates a completely new Seamonkey process with the given URL as its one and only tab

(Note that the argument referenced by $1 must be a proper URL; that is, file:///home/hanumizzle and are both halal, but plain /home/hanumizzle isn't)
