Hardware Debugger M1: Missing newline charactor when reading UNIX macros in Win95 or WinNT4.0

Description

Keywords: hardware, debugger, cmd, macro,

Urgency: standard

General Description:
When transferring the .cmd (macro files) from Unix to win95 or
NT4.0, the newline charactors are missing from the file.
Instead there is a pipe character in between every command. When
you try to run the macro file, hardware debugger will give you
error message and won't let you run the file.

Solution

The way to get around the problem is to edit the macro
file(.cmd) manually. Open the file and get rid of all the pipe
charactors, and press <return> in between every command, so
that there is only one command in each line. You probably will
have to close .xck file and reload in the xck file, in order to
make the newly created .cmd file to run correctly.
