Well you can easily test it ... just add an echo like so in wrapper.sh:
Code:
echo /path/to/mame $1 $var1 $var5 $var2 $var3 $var4
This will not execute anything but will show you what would have been called

Okay well thank you for your help. If anybody else has any more general/related comments to efficiently operating on the command line I'd still be interested.
