Wanted : IRISsession for Windows

In Cache for Windows (x86-64) 2018.1.3 (Build 414U) I found something very useful


I miss something similar in my IRIS for Windows (x86-64) 2020.1 (Build 215U)

neither IRISsession.exe  nor iris session ... nor similar

is available.

And YES,   I know irisdb.exe -s ..\mgr comes close to it.
So I wrote my own IRISsession.bat to cover my disappointment.

:: IRISsessin.bat
:: rcc's fake for the missing irissession.exe in Windows distribution
irisdb.exe -s ..\mgr %*

or did I miss something ?

For me, it looks now the ~same for Linux/UNIX and Windows

>> C:\InterSystems\IRIS\bin>irissession -U %SYS JOBEXAM

Not a big thing, nevertheless boring to distribute it to all installations.

Buongiorno Robert,

Indeed "iris session" doesn't exist (yet) in the Windows world, but it will probably come at some point in the future.

The "InterSystems IRIS Adoption Guide" happens to have been updated recently to clarify this point, suggesting the use of the terminal/console/run options instead.

Your example could look as follow:

iris terminal IRIS JOBEXAM %SYS
