Subject RE: spaces and path definition
Date Tue, 17 Jul 2001 20:51:10 GMT
An alternative that I use instead of quoting the paths that contain spaces
is to use the 8.3 format of the path.  For example, the path c:\Program
Files would be c:\progra~1.  The only trick is if the first 6 characters of
two or more subdirectories are the same.  In this case the numeric suffix is
different for each of the matching subdirectories.  I find this technique
useful to keep classpaths and paths down to a reasonable length.

Used double quotes around the c:\Program Files?

You should also use \\  instead of '\' in DOS paths.

No excerpt was pasted so I ask.
