    Re: can silk be run from a command line?

    The SilkTest application [as opposed to the Agent] is not supported on Unix. Therefore the command line question is moot.

    On Window's machines there is a command line interface but, at least when I automated running multiple suites via the command line in SilkTest 2.0, the command line interface is limited in the types of status you can gleen about execution results. This though may have been enhanced in 5.x.

    I used a Unix-like k-shell [the Thompson Toolkit, as well as MKS] to automate the scripting, extract status of interest from the Silk proprietary binary files, as well as setup Option Sets as I moved from one suite to the next.

    You might also investigate if you can achieve all of your goals using SilkOrganizer for you automation purposes [but time delayed execution is not yet supported, so here you would need to use a custom scripting solution].

    Hope these tidbits help.

    A quick addition, QAPartner supports command line execution under UNIX, actually you can run it using Shell scripts too.

    SilkTest (web enabled) is not developed for UNIX env.
