That all sounds great. I wonder if anyone told the fortran runtime?

Thanks for that new information. When did that change happen? Previously the \ was the path separator and the / was the switch separator. When did it change for them to become the equivalent and whatp’s the switch separator now?

AFAIK "/" has been "forever"  a valid path separator in Windows.

Thse switch separator is still "/" as well.

It all depends if there is a whitespace or not, i.e.

"a/b" == file b in directory a

"a    /b" == command a with switch b

Hi Robin,

that's not the issue, internally on MS Windows \ and / path separators are equivalent.

that trace looks as if there is a badly formed path somewhere in the jt9 decoder. The / should probably be a \. I would expect that you, as a user, are not in a position to amend it. [But I may be wrong, of course.]
