('binary' encoding is not supported, stored as-is) Hi,

I need to call VMD in text mode using the UNIX command line as follows:

$ vmd -dispdev text -e vmd_calls.txt -args "residue 5" backbone 0 1000 out_file

the problem is that VMD won't accept the double quotes in this call.   I get the error:

argv: Subscript out of range.

 My question is, can I pass a string containing spaces into -args as a single argument somehow?  I have tried several things like braces and backslash with no success.

thank you
