aliases.conf # reading error

Created: 04/Jan/13 04:16 AM   Updated: 05/Jan/13 03:13 AM
Component/s: Documentation, Engine, GBAK, GFIX, Installation, Security
Affects Version/s: 2.1.0, 2.1.1, 2.0.5, 2.1.2, 2.1.3, 3.0 Initial, 2.0.6, 2.5.0, 2.1.4, 2.5.1, 2.0.7, 2.1.5, 2.5.2, 3.0 Alpha 1, 2.1.6, 2.5.3, 3.0 Beta 1, 3.0 RC2
Fix Version/s: None

Environment: ALL (Windows, Linux)

 Description  « Hide
Firebird can not connect to any database defined in "aliases.conf" if file or folder name contains # char.
 Example : myalias = C:\#MyFirstFolder\MyDatabase.FDB

- There is no mention in the aliases.conf file's comment section about that (should be like at firebird.conf)
- It is a common practice to change folder or filenames beginning with # or _ signs to place them to first in the list

The Solution would be, if there would be a "# disabling sign" like: @
 and the engine or any other utilities (like gbak, gfix) would recognize this and ignore any # signs in that line beginning with that
 Example: @myAlias = C:\#MyFirstFolder\MyDatabase.FDB

Thanks !
