[squeak-dev] how to pass default startup parameters to VM?

Has anyone noticed that cutting text out of Chrome and trying to paste
it in Squeak does not work at all unless you first paste into a
text-editor first and copy it out of there?

Or, if you simply pass the -textenc utf8 paramter to the VM, all
C&P'ing seems to work just fine.

But I never remember to do it, plus its more to type every time I
start a VM.  So I wnat to put it into the actual bash script.

I thought I could just sneak it into the last line in that file:


changing it to:

"$BIN/squeak -textenc utf8" "$@"

but that isn't right.  Any suggestions?  Thx.
