Dear users,

is anybody able to reproduce the following behaviour?

I have two copies of my project with the .rhistory files in a directory with and without ampersand
a) d:\calc\foo1 & foo2 foo3\
b) d:\calc\foo1 - foo2 foo3\
I'm running "rscript .rhistory" in the dir. At the case a) I'm getting a following error: The system cannot find the path specified. 'foo2' is not recognised as an int. or ext. com... When sourcing the .rhistory in rgui, no error appears. Using winxp & R2.7.1
