Re: [code] [textadept] Experimental os.spawn

Will someone who has a Mac please perform an experiment for me? Create the following shell script, **, somewhere:


   for i in 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10; do
     echo $i
     sleep 1

Then make ** executable by running `chmod +x`.

Now fetch the latest Textadept nightly build for 15 October (very important, and available after 16 October 03:30 UTC), open the command entry (Cmd+E), and run the following:

   os.spawn('/path/to/', print)

where `/path/to/` is the real path to that file (e.g. /tmp/

Would you please verify that (1) Textadept does not crash, and (2) that every second a number is printed to the message buffer?

Thank you very much.
