storing bash defined variables into an FVWM var

Hi all:

Is there anyway, via a PipeRead, to store bash information into an FVWM variable?

I just want to store it. Could something like the following work?

+ I SetEnv MyVar PipeRead `date +%s`

I’ve tried the above, and it doesn’t seem to be working…

Any thoughts anyone?

thanks in advance,

Use piperead to echo the whole statement like this:

+ I PipeRead 'echo SetEnv MyVar `date +%s`'
