Well, consider this. I know what a .bat file is; I know how to use one. I don't know what a "cmd" or a "js" startup script is. If I need to modify the .bat file, I can read it, understand it, and use it without looking something up online. A lot of Windows users who would be interested in FOP are in pretty much the same boat. So what would be gained from using a relatively obscure script format rather than a .bat file? -- View this message in context: http://www.nabble.com/fop.bat-needs-patching-tf3361048.html#a9366292 Sent from the FOP - Dev mailing list archive at Nabble.com.
