How do I accomplish the simple invocation from a ruby script of a program 
that I normally start from the DOS prompt.
The backslash doesn't work, and I don't get the workarounds mantiond for 
shell commands to work, or is that not the same thing?

I feel really newbie-ish about this, and I really need it to work very 
soon. Hints/links apprechiated. I'v got 10000 images to vectorize, doing it 
by hand won't do any good. Doing it with Ruby would be nice.
