    The secret login script command

    Over in the ZPM group I noticed someone posting using the REGREAD
    command and thought it had to be external and wouldn't it be nice if it
    was built-in. Looking further, seems this has been built into the login
    script for many YEARS now!!

    Can I suggest here that it should be added to the docs? Or would the
    enhancement request be the way to go?

    It has been suggested in these forums in the past that regread be added
    to the doc, but it obviously remained a secret (not the closely guarded
    type, more like the secure-through-obscurity or undocumented feature type).

    Cheers
    GM

    Graham,

    Note that there are at least 2 TIDs documentating the command:

    http://www.novell.com/support/search...nalId=10022325
    http://www.novell.com/support/search...nalId=10068114

    I will however ask Novell to update the documentation as well.

    Regarding REGREAD and documentation, this is important info:
    "Regread cannot process binary or dword values"

    Graham,

    For more complex string handling client 4.91 SP1 and above should be
    able to handle it...

    REGREAD command in login script does not handle double quotes " "
