[tip] ulimited args & subargs with spaces & any order in bat

Was experimenting with arguments for a long time, reed things about shift, but everything was useless for my task.

Re: Porting Windows Batch (BAT) to Mac OS X shell scripts (S

Im not sure that apple sctipt is what i need.

Re: Create .bks file using batch script
