Hi Ranchers!!!

Can somebody throw some light on resources for Runtime.getRuntime().exec()
1> How to debug it?
2> How to pass unicode characters as parameters?
3> Any special adjustments for different platforms?

Sorry I have asked this question in this post too:

1. In an IDE, such as Eclipse. Of course this will only debug the java application. If you need to debug your executable, you'll need an IDE for whatever language the executable is written in.

2. Ernest has already answered this. Please don't cross post.

3. Depends on the platform. What OS are you trying to run this on?
