[Monetdb-developers] clients on windows 32...

Hi,

in Kambiz' case, the error message is not complaining about an extra space,
but about the '\' as first character on the line.

Hence, the usual questions:

Kambiz,

which version of MonetDB are you using, and how did you install it --- if I
recall correctly from previous mails, you did install using the
monetdb_install.sh script, right, and hence use the super source tarball?
But which version?

Further, a simple 
	mclient -l mal --help
(with a running mserver5) will reveal whether readline support (and hence
\h) is indeed enabled in your build of MonetDB.

Finally, do other \* commands work?

Stefan
