I use a few Linux programs on FreeBSD, and sometimes they invoke other programs that use command line options. I have never been able to get this parameter passing to work.
For example, PDF files read by Acroread can contain links to a web browser or an email program; these are often invoked as "program-name %s" in the set-up file. VMware does the same with invoking a browser from defaults set in a config file. I am able to get the appropriate program to open, but the parameters are never passed. I have tried many, many schemes to quote or escape the command and its options, but never have any of these worked. Any suggestions on how I might do this would be most appreciated!
