When I use a comma in some command arguments, I get an error message indicating that there are invalid arguments. Why?

Robo-FTP interprets commas the same as spaces. As a result, an argument with a comma is interpreted as two separate arguments (as if there had been a space between them).

The work around for this is to enclose the argument in quotations, which causes Robo-FTP to include both commas and spaces in the input string.

For example, if you use the FTPLOGON command, and use the argument /pw=pass,word then Robo-FTP will see this as two arguments. "/pw=pass" is a valid argument, but "word" is not.

If you use the argument /pw="pass,word" then Robo-FTP will read the entire string (pass,word) as the password for the login command.
