I am trying to capture output of a shell command in local variable to be used in a <define> later on. However I am running into some trouble, specifically that a line feed is also captured:
local MY_LOCAL = [ SHELL "echo test" ] ;
echo "before$(MY_LOCAL)after" ;
It yields this output:
Where I was hoping for:
Is it expected that a line feed is captured in the local variable? Have tried with piping into “head -1” etc.
Any helpful pointers appreciated.
