I've modified IBM's default SLIP script to handle my
university's annex and redial until it gets through, but still
have a question: how can the poor REXX script prompt me for
a password when it's run from the IAK Dialer?
The password prompting is already written in so that it
would work if the script were run via the SLIP command from an
OS/2 command prompt, but it can't work from within the Dialer.
I assume that if the script could somehow determine
that it was running within the dialer it could call some function
to pop up a dialog box instead of attempting (and failing) to
read from standard input.
So, folks, can somebody clue me in on 1.) how the script
might determine that it's running within the dialer and 2.) some
means for it to successfully get a password from the user when
that's the case?
