Hi grinder!

Thanks for the clarification.. I did indeed not see that you'd actually really, really want to bypass the shell.. ;)

Under that aspect, in a way, it's just fair you'll have to cope with what the shell usually does for you... ;)

If I recall correctly, system() calls execvp(), maybe you could do that yourself. But that would, of course, involve XS hacking, something I didn't want to touch so far (which might turn out to be a fear of nothing once I do). Then again, maybe there's something out there already...

Umm... I wish I could be of more help...

Good luck & so long,
