Feature Request: Display System Commands in the text_left or text_right Function

Description

Hi

What i mean is: At this time you can define in the "text_left" %H for Hours, what i need is an function: %cmd1,%cmd2 to display system commands on the Picture or Movie.

Example New Motion Config:

######################

cmd1=cat /proc/loadavg| awk '{print $1}' # See the last 5min load

cmd2=uptime | awk '{print $3}' # See the uptime in Days

text_left Cam-1 Up: %cmd1 Days

Sorry for my broken English. Thanks Robert

This feature is not needed a all you can use http://www.lavrsen.dk/twiki/bin/view/Motion/MotionHttpAPI

http://motionhost.mydomain.tld:port/2/config/set?user_text=value

So using a script that get the value as you said and then doing a HTTP resques following the API.

Look this :
