in reply to Problem with GetOptions

I think your problem stems from the fact that when the shell parses your string, it breaks on spaces (and there are spaces in your thing).

Try this:

SLIMSERVER_LOG="'|/usr/local/bin/multilog t s1000000 n20 /var/log/slim +server'"
Note the addition of quotes, which will cause the shell to not break the string up in the arglist.
