How to Open Terminal In Caché Mac OS


I am a newbie so excuse my basic questions.

I have installed Caché on Mac Os High Sierra 10.13.6 and have started the ObjectScript tutorial but I cannot open Terminal in Caché.

The instructions provided on the tutorial don't appear to be for Mac OS as there is no cube icon:

n order to begin practicing using ObjectScript, you need to start the Terminal. Click the Caché cube iconin the task bar and select Terminal from the menu. This brings up the terminal window, and you can see from the prompt that we are in the USER namespace. Namespaces are logical directories, containing routines (programs) and globals (data).

So my question is how do I open the terminal window in Caché, I have navigated to the user and samples  directory in Terminal window but the ObjectScript commands  are not recognised :

Hi Ciaran,

Please try below mentioned steps.

1. open mac "Terminal"

2. Need know Cache is running or not. (When you shutdown mac Cache automatically shutdown) Check the status and <InstanceName> enter below command in mac terminal. 

 $ ccontrol list

Configuration 'CACHE'
        directory: /usr/cache
        versionid: 2015.1.2.607.2.16979
        conf file: cache.cpf  (SuperServer port = 1972, WebServer = 57772)
        status:    running, since Wed Sep 19 06:04:37 2018
        state:     ok

3. if not, start the Cache, 

 $ ccontrol start <instancename>

after start check the status of Cache instance.(step 2)

4. Enter command after cache start 

 $ csession <instancename>

Cache Terminal start with default  namespace USER> .




and execute there

csession cache

Recently I already mentioned project Cube for macOS, which can be used to easily get access to Management Portal and terminal

@Dimitry do i need to uninstall my current version of cache to install project cube for Mac OS?


I have installed the but it cant detect my local cache installation, any ideas?

I am using Mac High Sierra.


I was not sure if it works, but looks like it does not work anymore. You can try  to fill issue, and maybe author will repair it.
