I'd try

xetex -ini "&xetex" "*dumptest.tex"

(you shouldn't need the sudo if you're doing this in your home directory)
where the * tells xetex to use extended mode and must be protected from the
shell by the double quotes or it will get gobbled up.


So I tried:

xetex -ini "&xetex" "*Genealogue.tex"

but got this error:

19:02: Genealogy_Folder xetex -ini "&xetex" '*Genealogue.tex'
This is XeTeX, Version 3.14159-2.1-0.88 (Web2C 7.5.2) (INITEX)
entering extended mode
! I can't find file `*Genealogue.tex'.
<*> &xetex *Genealogue.tex

What am I doing wrong?? I'm in the directory wheree Genealogue.tex is.
