Hi Stefan  - and thanks

that sort of works... And by that I means that it works - but not really in
the the way I would like to do it:

I would like to be able to use this command in a .bat-file, like:
compare.bat:
gnudoit "(ediff \"%1\" \"%2\")"

but that wont work since the filename have to be in either d:\\files\\file1
(double backslash) or d:/files/file1 (unix way - with single slashes)...
My questions is now:
1: Can I make the emacs system look in the current directory for the files??
2: Is there a way to make batch-files expand %1 into either of these paths
(Might be the wrong NG for this question)
