Q58487: C 6.00 Utility Support for OS/2 Long Filenames
Article: Q58487 Product(s): See article Version(s): 6.00 Operating System(s): OS/2 Keyword(s): ENDUSER | s_link s_nmake s_c | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 28-JAN-1991 The utilities shipped for Microsoft C version 6.00 provide limited support for OS/2 long filenames introduced in OS/2 version 1.20. The following is a list of the limitations: 1. Long filenames with quotation marks are supported via the command line. For example: "fooo bar" 2. Embedded quoted long filenames on the command line are not supported. For example: d:\foo\" bar xyzzy" 3. Link supports one quoted long filename per argument. For example "foo bar"+"bar foo" will resemble the following: "foo bar+bar foo" 4. NMAKE provides long filename support inside the makefile with the restriction (beyond 1 and 2 above) that target and dependent names cannot have a period (.) as the first character (conflicts with inference rules). For example: ".foo bar.c".".foo bar.exe"
