[Scilab-users] dos() bug: code or documentation issue?

Hello,

In the dos() help page https://help.scilab.org/docs/6.0.1/en_US/dos.html ,
it is written:

Standard output and standard errors of the shell command are written in the calling shell.

However, for instance the commands

--> consolebox on
--> dos dir     // shows nothing in the consolebox
--> dos dira    // shows no error in the consolebox

The same behavior can be seen as soon as with Scilab 5.0 (where consolebox has been introduced).. and up to 5.5.2 and 6.0.1 now.

Is it a dos() bug, or a documentation error?

Regards
Samuel Gougeon

PS: by the way, dos(), unix*() and host() are duplicates. More code, more bugs..
