Re: Calling a file as an argument to Editor.exe

It used to be that this would open XyWrite with foo.bar called:

c:\Xy\Editor.exe foo.bar

But for years (since Xy4?) that hasn't worked on my system,

It's not just you, Harry. Same issue here, under vDosPlus and CMD.EXE (32-bit Win 7). It looks like some unexpected interference from commands in STARTUP.INT. You can verify this by reducing your STARTUP.INT to a single command: foo.bar will be CAlled, but of course none of your customization will be there, and you may experience flakiness if you try to manually RUN STARTUP.INT with foo.bar open. Your workaround sounds as good as any -- unless you can reduce when you want to CAll foo.bar to one or more Boolean conditions, in which case you could have the following as your last command in STARTUP.INT:
BX ca foo.barQ2
