Thanks Mark, and Xavier too. This method works fine, and I can easily 
create a file on the fly and execute it. Cool.

Am I correct, then, that it isn't possible to send multiple commands 
with the shell() function? It would be cleaner if we could. Seems like 
we should be able to. I may mess around with it some more just to find 
out, but if anyone knows how to do it I am all ears.
