On my Windows 2000 system, I have a 1991 MS-DOS application called
"MKS Toolkit". It has a Unix "cat" command. Here's some interesting
results with Mathematica 5.0.
If I use the example in the Mathematica Book, I get ...
RunThrough ["cat", 123]
after a brief flash of the Mathematica-launched DOS box.
If I embellish this example a bit, I get ...
RunThrough ["cat", 123+456]
These are not the results I expected, as when this 1991 "cat" is typed
directly into the MKS DOS box I get ...
C:\MKS> cat 123
cat: 123: no such file or directory
C:\MKS> cat 123+456
cat: 123+456: no such file or directory
I'm baffled. Does this make sense to anyone?
