Run command (12d App)

A 12d Model app that runs a command via the Windows command shell (cmd.exe). This effectively is the same as calling the cmd.exe directly with the /C switch, but ensures the arguments are correctly quoted. However, the limitations and restrictions of cmd.exe are still present, so it is worth reading the documentation on that (cmd.exe /? from a command prompt).

Example usage:
run_cmd.4do "$USER_LIB_4DMy_batch.bat"

  1. Thank you Wizzard. I like it.
    I would like it even more if this app defaulted to (or had a switch to) run the external app on a new CPU thread so control was returned to 12d immediately. How many Bitcoins, Beers or FlimFlams would it cost to request such an enhancement to this free app. – Just how much community service are you required to do?
