Command line option '.read' - Windows version

When I execute SQLITE3.exe with thw .read command it as to be like this:


To specify the database we use the backslash, but for the SQL command file as to be the normal slash, the backslash does not work.

Is there any explanation for this ?

Thanks in advance

The backslash is perfectly acceptable to the .read meta-command. With your code, the meta-command argument parser is subjecting the command tail to backslash processing (see resolve_backslashes(...)), in which lone backslash characters and the character following are converted to a single character. If you were to double your backslashes, it would work fine.

Yes, it works now. Thanks
