I don't want to shell synchronously by calling cmd.exe unless that is the only way vedit can call another program. I can call vedit this way from other editors but I have not discovered how to call other editors the same way from vedit.

Try this test command to understand the process:
itoa(cur_line,10) itoa(cur_col,11) sys("Echo Line = |@(10) Column = |@(11)",dos)
If you are shelling to a Windows program which accepts parameters, you should be able to leave the "DOS" option off.
The Sys() command has many options.
