Do you mean the same as this issue:


TProcess does not support bash style syntax where parameters need to be
placed in quotes etc. This issue confuses the hell out of me as well. Marco
suggested a good solution - but it's not implemented yet. TProcess
parameters must be an array and not a string. anyway, read the bug report
to understand more of how TProcess interprets things.
