#536 new defect

Edits on archiver commands have flaws

Reported by: John Small Owned by: John Small
Priority: minor Milestone: Release_3.25
Component: fm/2 base Version: 3.21
Keywords: Cc:

Description (last modified by John Small)

1) The edits are not allowing me to enter a command of the form:
program keyword=keyvalue parameter

The program exists and FM/2 has no problem finding it if there is no keyword parameter. But with the keyword parameter FM/2 apparently considers "program keyword=keyvalue" as the command (it even puts it in quotes!?) and, since it cannot find such a program, it considers the whole thing invalid. Note: The "keyvalue" is the name of another program. This may be the source of FM/2's confusion.

2) When the error above occurs the error messages ...
a) are excessive: three messages
b) are redundant (IMO): save anyway? y/n, then later: rewrite BB2?
c) do not work properly: Responding "no" to the "save anyway" question, does save the entry anyway.
d) (after all three messages are finished) put you back to the "select an archiver to edit" window, even if you have said "no" to saving the command(s) or to rewriting the BB2. (With a "no" to either question, I would think the best place to return is the the edit archiver window so that the error could be corrected.)

Provide the exact command line you are trying to enter and a copy of what FM/2 turns it into. Thanks
