This will work but handling exceptions adds overhead - a consideration
if this is to be widely implemented - plus you get a lot of extra &*&%
in your job log. It also doesn't cater for situations where the called
program is library qualified (not a big deal I admit). I'll take Carl up
on his offer to post it on his BBS.
