Hi

when evaluating the code blocks below, I would expect  [[file:./cv.cls]] ,
but I get  [[file:./cv\.cls]], i.e. the "." is escaped and does not work.

When not using [[]], the "." is not escaped - is this a bug, or how can I
circumvent the esaping?

Cheers,

Rainer

Hi Rainer,

The leading "[" makes the string result look like a list to Babel, so it
is passed to the `read' function which then escapes the periods in the
file name.  You can inhibit this interpretation of the string by
explicitly informing the code block that you will be returning a string
with the ":results scalar" header argument.  You may also want to look
at the ":results file" header argument.

That explains. I an using it to return links to several graphs created in R,
so I think the scalar option would be a good solution.

Thanks a lot,

Rainer
