The 0 in the "nil 0 nil" part means discard any output and don't wait for the process to finish - see the documentation for call-process for more details. For more, check the list archives or worg: I had posted my method for popups to the list and Bastien has apparently put a pointer to it on worg somewhere. HTH, Nick
