yooShell brings the power of the Terminal and Command Prompt to FileMaker.
Many people are surprised to learn of the power lurking beneath the surface of Mac OS X and Windows. Under their graphical interfaces, these operating systems are built to support textual commands that run programs of all sorts, inspect and configure the system, and find, create, and manipulate files and folders.
Generically, such commands are said to be executed at the command line. An environment in which such commands are executed is commonly called a shell.
yooShell unlocks the hidden features of your computer, giving you complete access to the command line. There is literally no limit to the new functionality that yooShell makes available in FileMaker.
- Perform custom calculations with command-line utilities
- Process & analyze your data with external tools
- Run custom scripts
- Find files on the computer
It can be a joy to discover the things you never knew your computer could do at no additional cost. From simply reading a text file, to sending email, encrypting data, or running advanced statistical analysis, yooShell puts the countless possibilities at your disposal in FileMaker. Mac OS X users will especially benefit from the wealth of command-line Unix utilities built in to every system.
Developers using yooShell gain the freedom to write custom command-line utilities in the language of their choice. Using yooShell, even the simplest command-line software can be used to enhance FileMaker in ways as yet unimagined.
yooShell removes the barrier between FileMaker and the rest of your system. The number of tools you can bring to bear on your FileMaker databases just got a whole lot bigger.
