from what I understand, you are trying to run 2 commands?

one question that I ask myself then is: why does your driving program have to be a fpc program? What is wrong with a shell script?

while you may have valid reasons for doing so, have you tried to put that flow (calling of the 2 commands) into a single shell script and executing that instead?

kind regards,
