    start /tabna leaves blank windows when running batch scripts

    TCC/LE incompatibility with CMD.exe

    Hi, I found a minor incompatibility with TCC vs CMD.exe. If you have an IF statement such as: if defined var JAVA_HOME( This gives an error in TCC but not in CMD. The solution is to add a space prior to the open paren. This works in both CMD and TCC. Basically, it sounds like a parser...
