Using the parse command in V3.2 all double quotes in
the input parameters are removed. How do I retain
these ??

e.g. test.rexx Prop="test item" Old="bad" New="good"

Result after parse: Prop=test item Old=bad New = good

    Are you sure your problem is related to Regina?
    If you pass arguments to a script, the shell or the invoking
    program usually removes quotes. You have to
    quote them separately, e.g.
    rexx text.rexx 'Prop="test item"' 'Old="bad"' 'New="good"'

    This has nothing to do with Regina's PARSE instruction.

    Do I understand the problem correctly? Your example
    is rather short and the content of test.rexx may be useful
    to understand everything.

    Cheers, Florian

    You have understood the problem correctly and I will persue
    the problem our Windows-guys.

    Sorry to have troubled you.

    Thanks,
