    Folks,

    in the .NET programming world, I have a tool I need to use to create C# code from WSDL/XSD files.

    This "svcutil" tool requires me to specify a "back tick" on the command line, like this:

    svcutil.exe (some files specified) /ct:System.Collections.Generic.List`1

    Trouble is - when I try to execute this as a *.cmd or *.btm file, TCMD (v9 and v10) just tells me: " No closing quote" .....

    Well, duh - it's not a "opening-and-closing quote" what I need here - I need to be able to specify the back-tick as a parameter to svcutil.

    How can I do that????

    v:\> echoargs.exe filename /ct:System.Collections.Generic.List^k1
    echoargs.exe
    filename
    /ct:System.Collections.Generic.List`1

    echo %=`

    The %= escapes the next character from being handled specially.

    Or, use "setdos /x-7" which will remove "Quoting (affects back-quotes
    [`] and double quotes ["]) and square brackets)"
