This works great. Thanks to all for informative replies. Nice thing is that
this solution is completely portable.

Now one of the advantages of using terminal was that I could see the
progress in the terminal, and also I could see when the process was
completed. So:

- Is there a way of knowing when the process is over? For example have a
button change color when the process is finished.

- Suppose I wanted to see the progress, as in a Terminal window. Can I see
this in a window in Revolution? If not, any hints as to how I could use
terminal more elegantly?
