Hi guys,


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.


Best regards,

Martin Dyring-Andersen
