I ran mml2xxx.bat from the trunk minimal distribution version of JEuclid (from "jeuclid-minimal-3.1.2-distribution.zip") on 64-bit Windows XP Professional, and noticed the following problems:
1. Colors and font sizes cannot be changed. The -foregroundColor, -backgroundColor, and -fontSize flags have no effect.
2. Quotes that wrap the input file specification are unaccepted by the software when the input file specification uses the asterisk for multiple files (eg. "*.xml" fails to work, but *.xml works). This could be a problem if a directory path that contains spaces is involved, such as "c:\my files\*.xml", since quotes are needed to hold the path name together.
3. Cannot specify an output file name. Must provide a directory for output, even if a single file was specified.
4. In the command line help that appears when you enter mml2xxx.bat with no arguments, some of the lines are too long for a DOS box that is 80 characters wide. These long lines wrap around and make it difficult to read through the list of command line parameters. A small amount of reformatting would fix this.
Many thanks for your time and effort!
