Here is a function that works on OS X, Windows an Linux.


VBScript is used on Windows. You will run into people that do not have
VBScript activated (some anti-virus software seems to turn it off). One of
the first things I would like to do when the source code is available for
LiveCode is add a UUID generator and get rid of shell calls for copying
files. In the last few months I've seen a few reports from my customers who
have shell calls deactivated as well.
