: Both styles of slashes should work the same.  The code which loads

I hesitate to disbelieve you, Eli, but surely that (in parentheses) 
cannot be true since at this stage the program hasn't yet opened
DJGPP.ENV? Or do you mean that with suitable modification of DJGPP.ENV the
linker, when creating the user program, will disable the conversion, so
then the user program would not perform it?
