Hi Gary, Ray, list!

It looks like that... It looks like I didn't restart my cmd.exe after installing adding svn to a path.

Ok, but I see no way to address md5.asd.lnk at all . ' is not a quoting character under win32 so this is evidently a bug.

Yes, I was wrong, sorry. I thought it returns #\Return instead of #\Newline, and didn't even check that third element exist. It returns #\a,#\Return,#\Newline,#\b. 


(with-input-from-string (s "a
b") (read-line s)) 
returns a string of #\a,#\Return. This causes odd printing: 
- no closing double-quote is printed at all. This would be ok too. But I use GNU's readlink.exe to resolve *.asd.lnk to *.asd (as asdf does on linux). 

Here readlink returns (I guess) 
(here I guess we have #\Return and #\Newline).
Then I use readline (as you do in case of svn-info-component) and I get a filename with #\Return in the end of it. I have to remove it manually to get correct filename.

Are things easier in ccl with cygwin? If so, I can just install it. 
Especially if this could help solve md5.asd.lnk issue. 

Thanks for detailed reply :)
