 I couldn't get it to work. There is no substitution happening at all. I am getting the same arguments.

 winexec cacl.exe /c/name-fo-file

 gives: cacls.exec /c/name-of-file.

 I am sure the code is the right direction, and but there is some silly bug which makes it fail. I am actually used to vim/emacs syntax for string substitution, but I found the zsh syntax to be a bit exotic. Especially since zsh has SO many special cases. So if you could explain the above, I would be able to correct it myself.


  I take it that the first '@' stands for all arguments.

  What's the /#?
  what's (#b)?
 ([a-zA-Z]) stands for 1 character, enclosed in a paranthesis for its use in the replace regexp.
