Of course I did but if I right remember e.g. DosExec, WinExec and WinExecN (I
hope I remember the functions names in a right way ;-) ) don't needed the
process name a second time, isn't it?

Yes, it does. :-)

Perhaps a few more examples. You know: Sometimes it is a small detail that you
forgot and you are searching, and searching, and searching... ;-) 

E.g. at the moment I'm working on capisuite for Linux and want to change and
enhance many things. One is the sending of emails with a fax or voice as an
attachment because at the moment it is just a call of sendmail. But I've no
sendmail and I CAN NOT install it. So I have to see how to take the
email.MIME... and send it by the SMTP module. :-) 

But first I've to see how to get eric3 again running. Because I installed the
current snapshot but it has a problem inside the and There are many changes in comparision to version 3.4.2. And
3.4.2 crashes wenn I called Run the script. :-( 

Searching greetings
