    Execute plugin

    The line: "sub getDisplayName { return sring('PLUGIN_EXECUTE_SCRIPT'); }"

    should actually read: "sub getDisplayName { return
    string('PLUGIN_EXECUTE_SCRIPT'); }"

    - I can now get the 'execute' plugin - but I'm still not sure how it works &
    what it does

    I wanted to try this plugin - to see what it would do, and whether I could
    use it to pass IR commands over to other applications running on the server
    machine.

    However, having installed it in the plugins dir, Slimserver recognises it,
    but the player (Softsqueeze) doesn't ever see it, so I'm really none the
    wiser.

    Any suggestions?

    (I'm on WinXP, V5.4.1 2-2-05)

    from the website:
    This plugin can execute scripts or programs from the SlimServer. Edit the module
    to locate your scripts, choose the script for each event. Thus far, the plugin
    supports Open, Play, Stop, and Power events. Also includes web settings form to
    choose scripts. Pressing play during script selection runs the selected script.

    cheers,
