Hi BrowserUK,

I'm really curious if this kind of call is a speciality on Windows or something special in Perl on Windows. I don't know that API. Can you give me a pointer to the relevant documentation?

Thank you in advance

McA

    Beyond, How does system(1,"foo") work on Windows? & similar, I've never seen it documented. Damn glad it exists though :)
