Thank you Jerry. That was exactly what I was looking for. The script
in fact does call an external program and give it a command from a
randomized list.  Specifically it is a random wallpaper setter using
the windows version of bsetroot. script scans a directory, creates a
list of viable walls and tells bsetroot to set the wallpaper.  Using
popen instead of system did the trick handily. I thank you verily.
