Attempting to load an unload file on Windows from the command line can result in an error when the file path contains a backslash ‘\’
For example this command line:
sm file.load c:\clocks.unl NULL NULL winnt
will result in these errors:
RTE E ==>Error!! failed to parse command, execution aborted:
RTE E ‘sm file.load c:\clocks.unl NULL NULL winnt’
RTE E Please examine/correct your parameters, then resubmit the command.
The backslash character is interpreted as an escape character in which the data following the backslash is read as input.
Use a double backslash, \\
sm file.load c:\\clocks.unl NULL NULL winnt
to allow SM to read the backslash as a backslash
