Problem:

The AcuConnect User's Guide version 8.1, Section 7.2.1 Copying Files Between the Client and Server discusses access to files on the display host that may be accomplished via a set of directory specifiers.  It provides the following code sample that does not compile.

C$COPY "@[DISPLAY]:"/filename

Resolution:

The placement of the second double quote caused the compile error to occur. The correct syntax should be:

C$COPY "@[DISPLAY]:/filename"

When the corrected syntax is used in a program it may look like the following.

call "C$COPY" using "My_Image.bmp"
           "@[DISPLAY]:\My_Image.bmp"
