#61 %GTM-E-FILENOTFND when compiling from the shell

When the mumps binary is called from the shell with
filename parameter which contains a dash ('-')
character, the compilation fails:

$ mkdir test-test
$ cd test-test
$ echo 'START Q' > t.m
$ /SCA/gtm_dist/mumps ../test-test/t.m
%GTM-E-FILENOTFND, File ../test not found
%GTM-E-FILENOTFND, File - not found
%GTM-E-FILENOTFND, File test/t.m not found

The same error occurs even if the filename is enclosed
in quotation marks. Since the dash is a valid part of a
Unix filename, I'd say it's a bug.

GT.M version 4.4, AIX & Linux

    Thanks Jiri for reporting this. It is a known limitation of GT.M.
    Since dash (-) is used before all the unix qualifiers of GT.M, it
    gets confused. We have created tracking number "S9F01-
    002528" for this.

    Thanks.
