Concatenating blanks to strings????

Discussion in 'Support' started by mathewsdw@sbcglobal.net, Mar 15, 2009.

  1. It seems to me that I was able to do this in the past, but I absolutely don't seem to be able to do it now. All I want to do is to add a blank to an existing string, ("Set" variable), front end, back end, even in the middle, I don't care because I can just adjust the surrounding code to fit. Here are some examples (from my last few attempts) that can be done right at the command line:

    [Z:\]Set ABC="ABC"
    [Z:\]Set Blank=" "
    [Z:\]Echo "%@UnQuote[%ABC]%@UnQuote[%Blank]"
    "ABC"
    [Z:\]Echo "%@UnQuote[%Blank]%@UnQuote[%ABC]"
    "ABC"
    [Z:\]Echo "%@UnQuote[%ABC]%@UnQuote[%Blank]%@UnQuote[%ABC]"
    "ABCABC"

    Any suggestions?

    Experiment with ^s and ` `.

  3. Thanks for getting back to me so quickly, Vince. However (and you didn't see it either) it's all due to a misunderstanding/screwup on my part. What I didn't realize (maybe due to my "exposure" to so many other languages) is that "@Replace" doesn't actually do the replacement(s) "in place", but instead returns the string with the indicated replacement(s) having been done! (DUH! :o) Anyway, sorry to have wasted your (and my) time!!!
