Sorry it wasn't. And sorry if I am still not able to comprehend: Why
would embedded zeroes -- and by that I assume you mean not the digit 0
but the nullcharacter \0 -- be part of command input to mp_execute? I
thought the user is supposed to input the exact same commands as they
would input in an .mp file. I still don't comprehend how a nullchar \0
would be part of MP syntax.
