Lumail - The console email client

Lua primitives: exec()

NOTE: Lumail-legacy has been superseded by Lumail 2.x, which has a wholly unified Lua API.

The exec function will reset the screen to allow you to run an interactive program without seeing any garbled display artifacts.

You might use it as follows:

exec( "top" );

When the program terminates the screen will be reset, and the current display restored.


This function has been available since version 0.07.
