use of -p:
Provided for use with a Windows shell program that is running SilkTest as a batch task. The option enables another Windows program to receive a message containing the number of errors that resulted from the script(s) run. SilkTest broadcasts this message using the Windows PostMessage function, with the following arguments:· hWnd = HWND_BROADCAST· uiMsg = RegisterWindowMessage (mess)· wParam = 0· lParam = number of errorsTo take advantage of the -p option, the shell program that runs SilkTest should first register mess, and should look for mess while SilkTest is running.
It's in the help under command line options.
You will find nothing else anywhere that explains or expands on it further.
This is one of the options where you need to try it by "trial and error" and let the rest of us know the result. My own suspicion is that it was created for a single Customer's VB specific problem and then found it's way into the product.
