add to bootlocal tool
« on: December 02, 2008, 08:33:13 PM »
Tools | Add to bootlocal gives me a file browser saying
Select file to be added to bootlocal
instead of allowing me to type a command to add.
Old wounds that have never healed need to be re-exposed before the cure can be applied.  The cure must be available before the wound is re-exposed.

We don't have a built in editor in TC except for vi.
So, the design was to use your favorite editor extension and create a small script.
This way you can also thoroughly test said script.
Then call the add2bootlocal.sh script to add your script to run.
Also this is a holdover from my work at DSL, where many GUI created scripts.
Then the GUI add2xxxxx could be used to add a call to the newly created script.
