Subject: ANN: Run FrameMaker, plugins from command line

Omni Systems has released a free utility, runfm.exe, that allows you to start FrameMaker, open a book and/or file, run a plugin, and close FrameMaker again, all from the Windows command line. While it was created to automate Mif2Go projects (for build processes or Scheduled Tasks), runfm.exe works with any plugin that accepts a command via the ClientCall notification. We plan to add features, but will always maintain backward compatibility, as we do for Mif2Go. And we will always make runfm.exe available free. We invite other plugin creators to use this program. Just tell users the ClientName of your plugin, and specify what you want in the string passed to the ClientCall handler. (We can even include that information in the Mif2Go User's Guide, if you wish.) To obtain runfm.exe, download the Mif2Go demo version (demo33u44.zip) from: http://www.omsys.com/dcl/download.htm The demo includes runfm.exe, and also UserGd.hlp, the WinHelp version of the Mif2Go User's Guide; chapter 29 tells how to use runfm.exe: http://www.omsys.com/dcl/usergd/runfm.htm There is no restriction on use, and you do not have to license (or even try) Mif2Go. If you already use Mif2Go, you'll find runfm.exe in the current upgrade (m2g33u44.zip) file; no need to download anything else. Enjoy this gift of the season! -- Jeremy H.
