You can use the shell command (or the shell workaround for Revolution 
1.1.1 on OS X).  The command line syntax and the response is not quite 
the same for the different platforms.

However, in your case, it may be sufficient to try to open an http tcp 
link.

(The shell workaround is at Ken Ray's site:  
<http://www.sonsothunder.com>.  I don't know if it has the quoted 
parameter update, but I don't think you need that.)
