Starting Your favorite editor from Erlang

For me it works if I give the path between double quotes (which are quoted).
Example:
  os:cmd("\"C:/Program Files/Adobe/Acrobat 5.0/Reader/AcroRd32.exe\""). This
is XP and Erlang 5.2.3.3.

Usually in Windows you have to put a path that contains white space within
double quotes (").
