Ah! yeeesss! completly forgot that! while reminds me that I used the  
first one a couple of times in my scripts ;-o)))

I did not know the second one (to run)
Very worthwhile to know this 2 commands and their difference

Thanks a lot Emmett, I much appreciate your contribution

Best regards from Grenoble
