in the past i used motex' [system] object to open html files. not 
vanilla of course. plus, unfortunately on windows it always opens the 
console window for a short time (then closes). but i can live with that. 
it's a fantastic addition to the powers of pd if you want to use ffmpeg, 
sox etc.

a vanilla "command line object" to send a message to the operating 
system would be really cool inside PD. with a big warning sign perhaps ;-)
