It appears to be common to split on ; and your program is no exception.

It doesn't appear to handle quoted path names, which are valid, both the "pa;th" and "pa th"\"of space" variety

shell commands (copy paste into cmd.exe):
md "pa;th" echo @echo how the pa;th are ya > "pa;th"\pathme.bat pathme set path="pa;th";%path% pathme md "pa;th"\"of space" echo @echo how the pa;th\of space are ya > "pa;th\of space"\pathem.ba +t pathem set path="pa;th"\"of space";%path% pathem
Output:
C:\>md "pa;th" C:\>echo @echo how the pa;th are ya > "pa;th"\pathme.bat C:\>pathme 'pathme' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. C:\>set path="pa;th";%path% C:\>pathme how the pa;th are ya C:\>md "pa;th"\"of space" C:\>echo @echo how the pa;th\of space are ya > "pa;th\of space"\pathe +m.bat C:\>pathem 'pathem' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. C:\>set path="pa;th"\"of space";%path% C:\>pathem how the pa;th\of space are ya C:\>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
