User can execute Linux commands in the PicOS CLI to display the system process, create a directory, or execute commands added by third party software.

admin@XorPlus# run bash "ps"
  PID TTY          TIME CMD
5289 ttyS0    00:00:00 bash
5301 ttyS0    00:00:03 pica_sh
7725 ttyS0    00:00:00 ps
admin@XorPlus# run bash "pwd"
/tmp/home/admin
admin@XorPlus> 

 

If the command requires multiple parameters, quotation marks are required. Here is an example from the configuration mode used to check the system configuration file. 

TelAviv# run bash "cat /pica/config/pica.conf"
