View Full Version : Include full command line when shelling to 3rd party utils

02-16-2009, 01:38 AM
when shelling to lzma or upx, and an error occurs, please include the full command line that generated the error in the log file as well as the actual exit/error code.

This is not helpful at all (And yes; the file exists, and yes; it previously built fine)

Along these lines, it would be nice to be able to tweak command lines -- as the 3rd party utils typical mature faster than SUF; it would be nice to be able to use them in a more configurable manor.

Build failed.
