Ack - you're right.  One should avoid popen and system
in all but personal hacking code.  There are many ways,
beyond just embedded shell redirection, to cause problems
with these calls.

One should directly code execve(), execv(), or execl().

Search for "popen system IFS PATH"

                  I won't rest till it's the best ...
