My hunch... One of the parameters you have entered has a single quote, ‘'’, and that starts a quoted string which can cross the end of the first line into subsequent lines. The normal shell's prompt of ‘$’ changes to ‘>’ to show this line is a continuation of the previous one. $ echo foo foo $ echo foo'bar > xyzzy' foobar xyzzy $ Remove the quoting behaviour of the single quote by prefixing it with a backslash, ‘\’, which is an ‘escape hatch’ for proving a literal quote despite its special meaning. This is known as ‘escaping’, e.g. ‘escape the ' with a \’. -- Cheers, Ralph. _______________________________________________ get_iplayer mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.infradead.org/mailman/listinfo/get_iplayer
