In case of spaces in the path, it (the path) would need to be quoted.

~ Edit ~

Quotes are usually needed when using commands dealing with paths and/or file names with spaces .. /run /splay /play /write /writeini etc.

you can use " $+ path $+ " or you can use $qt(path) . just wanted to point that out wink


if ($me != tired) { return } | else { echo -a Get a pot of coffee now $+($me,.) }

Actually things like /run and /splay that take the last parameter as a filename don't need quotes. Quotes are only needed to surround filepaths that are somewhere in the middle of the expected parameters, eg. /write and /writeini. When it's the last parameter there's no ambiguity about where the filename ends so they're not needed.

True, I was just thinking of any commands that need a file, should've thought of that.
