Bouncing off of @Robert Cemper 's hints, if you are using a default SMP (system management portal) login you can just pass in the arguments for the username and password fields as follows:

Alex - I think it isn't a smart idea to call into a specific line number of a routine since the contents will change.  Instead you should call the line labels/functions called within the routine by outside of the routine and pass all appropriate variables, etc that way.

Trying to call a specific line number will certainly lead to faster than desired 'bit rot' in your unit test library.

Welcome to the the InterSystems Developer Community!!

1) ObjectScript is a (very, very large) superset of the M language (previously known as MUMPS)

2) InterSystems IRIS uses much of the core technology that was in Caché, but it is a break from the past in many ways and allows next-gen development tools, architectures, etc.  InterSystems IRIS is an upgrade path which current Caché based applications should seriously consider.  Zen is a legacy web development technology which runs on top of Caché (it ships with Caché and InterSystems IRIS

You can use $version(1) to see if it is Windows (returns '2') or UNIX (returns '3').  If you want to get really fancy you can include and then use the $$$isUNIX and $$$isWINDOWS calls (which just check to see if $version(1) is 2 or 3).

Personally, I like using ##class(%Studio.SourceControl.ISC).RunCmd() as it wraps the capture of the output for parsing.

You can tie $version together the other answers into something that is platform independent (warning, I haven't tested this, but I believe the pieces work)


You are absolutely correct that using Client-Side source control hooks (ie the Eclipse Git hooks with Atelier) in a Shared development instance is a recipe for disaster and frustration.  You options are moving to Private development environments (each developer gets their own Namespace, or instance, or VM or container), or move to Server-side source control hooks.

I did an in depth session on this at Global Summit 2017 which should be of interest to you.  You can watch the recording and get the slides here

I should have searched just a little longer.


I found this in Documatic for my class (inherited because it is persistent)
