in reply to backtick ignores parameters

OTMH, dont you need to give it %20 instead of a space between the params?

%20

    These are not URL-encoded parameters -- i am invoking the program internally, so the command gets sent to the webserver OS.
      A, Sorry if this sounds mean, I dont intend to be, but did you try it?
      B, I went back and checked out some old scripts. I had this problem as well a long time ago. I ended up using a question mark to between the params and that worked. I am not sure why exactly (darn this getting old thing). If any monks have some insight to the question mark thing I would be grateful.
      let this be a lesson to me to comment code better.

      update changed formatting...
      also, when you run things from the command line, the shell translates it first. I dont think it works the same way from inside the script. Agian please correct me if I am wrong.
      Thanks Josh
        Actually I did try after all :) , just to cover all angles -- tried every variation (with and without ?, with and without &, etc). No luck. You are apparently right about it working differently from within a CGI script ... (see responses below).
