#092; is a backslash
Authored by: mstoops on Dec 18, '02 12:56:55PM
It took me a minute to figure why when I pasted this into an editor, the script wouldn't run. On the line

item_parent="`cd #092;"${item_parent}#092;" 2>/dev/null && pwd || echo #092;"${item_parent}#092;"`"

substitute the #092; with a backslash (\). There should be four substitutions:

item_parent="`cd \"${item_parent}\" 2>/dev/null && pwd || echo \"${item_parent}\"`"

Hope this helps.

You are exactly correct. I thought I submitted the original (text file) posting with backslashes. Maybe something got lost in the translation to HTML.
