Thats a good idea, but unfortunately it doesn't work across all Windoze platforms.  It works on NT4 (probably W2K as well), but not 98, and almost certainly not on 95.  My general solution is messy, but it is guaranteed to work across all platforms, as it uses the "lowest common demoninator" batch file functionality.

Hi folks,

Can't we use %* instead of all the %1 %2 %3....?  Works under NT4.  Don't know
about Win98/95.
