RE: "murgaLua -e string" in Windows and Mac

I think you might be reading more into this than is necessary. Yes, I understand that there could be weird characters in a Windows path, but that's something I have no interest in supporting. All I'm trying to do here is to pass the lua command images="some path". If that path has ridiculous characters in it and the script fails, I don't care...I see that as a moronic thing that the end user will have to deal with. File paths should be alphanumeric, and anything else beyond spaces (which are sadly much too common to ignore) is not worth my time.

I will look into this last suggestion, though, since it doesn't seem to be too complicated as far as filesize and processing goes.

Thank you for all your help. I'm not sure when I'll next be testing on windows, but you've given me a lot of options that I hadn't seen before.

edit: alphanumeric is probably a bit more restrictive than I intended. There are a few characters, underscores and hyphens (and tilde for backups), that are acceptible. Just about anything else has the potential to cause problems for numerous applications.
