Hi friends,

I have a command line utility which will process a generated file like:
get shell(q(tCommandLineUtility) && q(tGeneratedFile))

function q tString
 return QUOTE & tString & QUOTE
end q

Any hints on how to make this NON blocking somehow?
I need a solution for Mac and Win.

Thanks for any hint.
