Hi Jason,

E:\Program Files\SWISH-E>swish-e -w you -x "%t %d" -H0
d

So is command.com getting confused and thinks:

      "%t %d"
       ^^^^ -- these

That is:

      '%t %'

is a environment variable substitution?  That would explain the single "d"
being returned.

Who writes this stuff? ;)

Does this happen on Win NT or Win2k?
