Subject Re: [cli] method to convert a string (which is a whole command line) into an array (of arguments)
Date Thu, 03 Apr 2008 16:32:43 GMT
If you're doing that, just use the single-string version of 
Runtime.exec() and let Java figure out how to parse it appropriately for 
your OS.

I do that in my product - works fine on Unix, Window, MacOS.
