 This should work. How does DOS locate a program specified on the 
command line:
 1) Checks, whether you didn't give the full (or relative) path.
 2) Looks in the current directory.
 3) Searches throughout directories specified in PATH.
 I must have a look at it, there might be some DOS function for 
getting the full executable path as well, which would be easier, of 
course (_if_ it would be supported under EMX/RSX).

 Yes, it is.
