good idea; I've just tried it, but no go I'm afraid :-(  though that has
been known to cause trouble with Digitalk Smalltalk/V on Windows. I
assume that by VW you mean VisualWorks, the PP version?  Just to confuse
matters, the Windoze executable for Smalltalk/V was always known as
vw.exe. (Digitalk, of course, never targetted Unix).
