I recently discovered yet another cmd.exe quirk which reminded me why I detest it so. It special-cases the FTYPE command, doing either limited or no % expansion on the line before processing it. This means that the same FTYPE ... %1 ... %* command entered into cmd.exe and TCC produce different results. Mind, I am not complaining or recommending a change -- I much prefer a consistent set of rules for processing command tails over the hardly-predictable cmd.exe approach.
