Hi again.

I've tried this both binary and text mounts. Makes no odds. It isn't
just any files, it's stuff like directory listings and other standard

However, see the later reply regarding 

(defun bash ()
  (let ((binary-process-input t)
        (binary-process-ouput nil))

from Stefan Svenberg <>.

Excellent. Works well.  Cheers all.

PS. Please ignore mail problem reagrding lisp also sent to this
list. Should have gone to the NTEmacs list. Trouble with working late
I guess:-)

Thanks again.
