Thanks. Well, I do already know this really, but since we can't delete messages, I edited my original to what it is now.
Originally I was confused because I saw this in the LIB.HYP file for calling the file selector (the English converted HLP->HYP files from the other thread)
Code: Select all
path = 'A' + Dgetdrv();
path = ':';
Dgetpath( path+2, 0 );
strcat( path, "\\\\*.*");
That \\\\ in the concatenate threw me for a loop.
What I finally realized was that the Bash script I made to process the STG files generated from the HLP files had duplicated all occurrences of the \ character.
So when I compiled the STG into HYP, this error was propagated.
Once I understood the problem, the line became:
and I knew what was happening.
But it was good that happened because I was able to fix the HYPs and re-up them to the other thread. All's well that ends well.
