Thanks for the reply.
Yes, it probably *would* have been easier to read. Apologies for
any lack of clarity.
My response to Kae's reply contains a more readable example.
However, the problem is not in building the contents of $command.
The problem is in *executing* the *contents* of $command.
Regardless of how I wrap the string to assign it to $command, I'm
still trying to execute the same command and I get the same result.
