The question I pose is more DOS than Pascal related but as there is no explicit DOS section I guess here might be the best place to ask it (hope that's ok). I did already pose it somewhere else a few months ago but as I was new to Experts Exchange I made a mistake by accepting an answer too soon which was incomplete (-:
There is a chess program for DOS named "Rebel" (version is 7.0). This chess program was able to create a directory in my DOS/Win 3.1 file system named "Ax nf zz"!!!
As I know it's not allowed in DOS/Win 3.1 to create a directory whose name contains spaces. If I try i.e. to do it by typing "MKDIR C:\Ay dd" I get an error message like "too many parameters ...dd".
I have two questions now:
1. How is it possible to create such an "illegal" directory in a DOS/Win 3.x file system?
2. How can I access such a directory THROUGH DOS ("CD Ax nf zz" does not work!)?
