I'm not sure I understand the question. I consider the behavior in
System.IO to be well-documented. The behavior in System.Process is not
documented at all. As I said, I'm not certain what the proper answer
is, but not documenting what happens probably isn't it.
Actually, the behavior of openFile when given a String with characters >
0xFF is also completely undocumented. I am not sure what it does with
that. It should probably be the same as runCommand, whatever it is.
