this seems to work:
if arg = '1' then
cmd := 'ifup wlan0'
else if arg = '0' then
cmd := 'ifdown wlan0';
S := fpsystem('/usr/bin/sudo ' + cmd);
Now I just have to deal with the error when executing an ifdown
command when the wlan0 is already down. Strange that a command should
result in an error message if the result of the command is already
present at the start...
Reminds me of some similar errors on a CNC machine controller I
automated 15 years ago:
-> ERROR: filename does not exist!
Such messages should not exist either, if one wants to delete a file
and it is not existing then the mission is accomplished from the start
and there should not be an error message...
In this case the Raspbian system generates:
sudo ifdown wlan0
ifdown: interface wlan0 not configured
sudo ifup wlan0
ifup: interface wlan0 already configured
Well, luckily I saw it so I can handle these "errors"
