Provides a CLI "shell" for accessing CLI commands


evsh [-x]


This command provides a CLI "shell" as a convenient way to run CLI commands. It allows the user to log into ExtraView once, then enter unlimited CLI commands without the need to re-authenticate for each command. This is most useful in environments where users prefer not to save their usernames and passwords in an ASCII file with the evset command.

The default evsh prompt is ev%. This can be changed by defining a different value for PROMPT in the evconfig.txt file, or, individually, in a user’s .evrc file.

Operating system commands may be entered within evsh. A command line history is also made available, using the up and down arrow keys.
