Subject Can I call system shell commands from server side CouchDB JavaScript or Erlang?
Date Tue, 15 Jun 2010 07:42:13 GMT
Hi,

I would like to write a CouchDB app which creates an inventory of
files on the user's computer. I know I could write a client in Python
which would update CouchDB but I would really like to be able to do it
all from the couchdb app. Is there a way to call system commands from
CouchDB with JavaScript (or Erlang)? Something similar to Python's
subprocess module would be perfect:
http://docs.python.org/release/2.5.2/lib/module-subprocess.html

Many thanks,
Cillian
