Hi Dave,

Thanks for the help.That is much easier than installing from SqueakMap anyway. I had thought about installing OSProcess and CommandShell from SqueakSource. However, I was not sure because of the other packages OSProcess-Base, OSProcess-Tests which were recently updated as well. It seems they are not needed because they are not loaded with your loading instructions?

Thanks for your work on Squeak!
