1.3.140 set escapes-in-filenames
Controls the use of special characters in paths.
set escapes-in-filenames off|on
Specifies that a backslash in a path is treated as a directory separator (with the exception that it can be used to escape spaces). For example:
The first backslash is treated as a separator followed by a t, not an escape sequence representing the tab character. The second backslash escapes the space.
This is the default.
Specifies that a backslash is to be treated as part of an escape sequence to indicate that the character following is a special character. For example:
The backslash in this example is a directory separator and must be identified as a special character.
