[REBOL] Re: calling batch programs

Yeah but they couldn't get it to work if I remember correctly. However it would be possible to use the asynchronous pluggable protocol structures in windows to make a protocol to call wscript or an exe or what have you, that then parses the protocol passed via the command line and then redirects to the proper command line required. Unfortunately doesn't allow communicating with called programs that way, but it might be a useful hack for older versions of /Core of /View.
