Ampersand (&) In Directory Structure

Recommended Posts

It looks like BoostC can't handle an ampersand character (&) in the directory structure of files passed to it.


Here's an example output:


Launching the compiler...
BoostC Optimizing C Compiler Version 6.35 (for PIC18 architecture)


Starting preprocessor: "C:\PROGRAM FILES\MATRIX MULTIMEDIA\FLOWCODE V3\BOOSTC\pp.exe" "C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\Pump Software\v3&v3b4\v3b4 stuff\lcd_v3\lcd_v3b4.c" -i "C:\PROGRAM FILES\MATRIX MULTIMEDIA\FLOWCODE V3\BOOSTC\include" -d _PIC18F2525 -la -c2 -o lcd_v3b4.pp -v -d _BOOSTC -d _PIC18 

C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\Pump Software\v3(1): error:  failure


The offending folder name is "v3&v3b4". Change this to "v3_v3b4" and everything works fine.
