Batch file acts strangely

    Here's a batch file I use from within DevEnv (long "dumpbin" lines may be wrapped).

    window min
    echo -
    iff "%2" == "both" then
    echos Before: Size: %@filesize[%1.prev]` `
    dumpbin /headers %1.prev | egrep "virtual size|^ *\." | sed -e 's/virtual size//g' | sed -e 's/ name.*//g' | crunch
    echos ^r^nAfter:` `
    endiff
    echos Size: %@filesize[%1]` `
    dumpbin /headers %1 | egrep "virtual size|^ *\." | sed -e 's/virtual size//g' | sed -e 's/ name.*//g' | crunch
    copy /q %1 %1.prev

    When I run it from a DevEnv "external tool" with

    Command: d:\tcmd9\tcc.exe
    Params: /c u:\postbuild.bat $(TargetPath)

    it bombs thus:

    Size: 12288 TCC: U:\postbuild.bat [9] Unknown command "^ *\. | sed -e 's/virtual size//g' | sed -e 's/ name.*//g' | crunch"
    TCC: (Sys) U:\postbuild.bat [10] The system cannot find the file specified.
    "G:\Projects\plugsample\release\qbat.dll g"

    If I give it a superfluous parameter,

    Params: /c u:\postbuild.bat $(TargetPath) foo

    it runs OK, producing the expected output:

    Size: 12288 .text 17ED .rdata DCC .data 4104 .rsrc 1D8 .reloc 3D8

    Any idea what's going on?
