Escape Sequences


1.   Escape sequences

Destination and some other file names are scanned for escape sequences beginning with the escape character '%'. The accepted format is:

'%cX' or '%mcX' or '%n-mcX'

1.1   Alternative escape character

Instead of '%' an alternative escape character can be used. It is defined by the option --esc (-E). This makes live easier if using the cygwin version together with the windows shell 'cmd'. Define the environment variable 'WIIMMS_SZS_TOOLS' for a new default definition.

Example for Unix bash: export WIIMMS_SZS_TOOLS="--esc=$"
Example for Windows: set WIIMMS_SZS_TOOLS=--esc=$
