    * \write18::          Pass a command line to the operating system shell.

Something about that just doesn't seem natural. I'll have to think about it.

Meanwhile, I added a paragraph about the \write18 arg being interpreted
by /bin/sh or cmd.exe, regardless of the user's shell, etc. --best, karl.
