Borland linker TLINK uses '+' character to add new
object file to the library. It is not too intelligent
it can not recognise " quotes around the file names
neither in command line nor in its "response file".
When name contains '+' TLINK looses the control.
There is a work around. The DOS 8.3 file format does
not allow '+' in file names too. Java code should
convert names of the the response file and object files
before calling/writing.
Im am newbie in Java (and ant, and ...), I can not know
do it elegantly.
If you help me a little, I am able to write it. Is
there a utility function in Java/Apache domain or can
use "DIR /X" process or can call a Win API function?
