Hi Taco,

one more question ... (sorry for being so annoying)

I guess we have to live with the fact that the quoting has to be done
ONLY for windows, because when I do
	command = { '"'..perlbin..'"', '"'..script..'"'}
	command[0] = perlbin
then it works on win32, but on unix I get:
	cannot find script ""...""
(mind the double quotes.

Well, I can live with it, it is just a pain ;-)

Best wishes
