Is there a way to chain calls in Bitcoin core client console window like this

validateaddress (getaccountaddress "")

instead of

getaccountaddress ""
validateaddress _address from previous call_
  • I'm pretty sure there is not. The API is quite simple. May 2 '14 at 23:23
  • Chaining is not really a good practice, if anything fails in between the commands you have zero control over the exception handling. May 3 '14 at 17:54

You can use the $() syntax to execute another command and have it return its results:

validateaddress $(getaccountaddress "")

Here's the docs: http://www.gnu.org/software/bash/manual/html_node/Command-Substitution.html#Command-Substitution
