in thread System() in list mode?
Well yea... it uses execvp(). Which should work no?
No need to be an a$$ to people taking time out of their lives to help you.
So then how would you use system() if your program's path name has spaces in it?
You can use $WHAT in foo.sh like this. Notice the space.
system('env', 'WHAT=bar', '/Users/onelesd/Work/space/a space/foo.sh') ;
There's no "supposed to" about it.
Use the multi-arg form if you want to run a program.
Use the single-arg form if you want to execute a shell command.
