When mixing \ and / on the MASM command line, MASM will sometimes give incorrect results and hang. The following command line causes these problems:
masm -I\sl200qr\sl -Mx -DVERS_DDQR -I\sl200qr/sl/cmerge/src/Common \sl200qr/sl/cmerge/src/Common/comsup.asm;
The option -Mx will be ignored. MASM also hangs when processing some assembler files.
In this case, MASM was incorrectly extracting the base name; it wrote the full path into an array big enough only for an 8.3 filename, thus overwriting many global flags.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in MASM version 5.1. This problem was corrected in MASM version 5.1a.
