Thanks. Yep, tried 'em all now, single, double, backticks, escaped slashes "\"
all that I an think of for the bash shell.

The only ones that don't throw an error are backticks. As they are usually part
of command substitution in the shell, the actual res{Low] isn't being parsed at
all on the command line essentially executing povray test.pov and using the
default 800x600 resolution.

I'll keep looking tho' ... ;)
