Is there anyway from any kind of any Installer script (preflight,
postflight, etc.) to ask the user for a value and to get that value
from within a script? (Bash, Perl, AppleScript, etc.)
In this case, we'd like to ask the user for a name of something.
And then use that name within a script.
My fear based on the answer to the recent progress question is that
the answer is probably No. But this is just different enough that I
thought it might be worth hoping otherwise.
If you do not forget that the installation process can be performed
without any kind of interaction and that you then need to have some
default behavior/values for these cases, you can achieve what you're
looking for by using an Installer plugin.
The plugin would provide the UI for the interaction and would save
the value in a file in /tmp for instance so that it can be read from
Do not post admin requests to the list. They will be ignored.
