Thanks Micha for your answer. The "=" wasn't the problem but I finaly figured 
out a working syntax.

emacs --eval "(edirs \"MyDir1\" \"MyDir2\" \"cpp\")"

does the trick. It does also work with gnuclient and can be called via user 
menu of (for instance) the midnight commander to compare the directories 
panels currently shown or to compare a file present on both panels.
