DXCluster connect commands

Because the connect command option for DXCluster uses commas to separate multiple commands, I am not sure how to issue a single command that contains a comma. For example on DXSpider I want to listen for spots in zone 4 and 5 so I would enter "accept/spots by_zone 4,5"

Is there a way to include an escaped comma in this string so that it is interpreted as part of the single command and not the start of a new command?

Hi KB3YLB,
I had the same problem as yours due to cqrlog using comma to separate macros.

As this is deemed a feature, and not a bug (?) , you have to download the source code, modify a line, compile and install the code.

It is really easy if you are interrested. I have done it, and I am not a programmer.

In my setup cqrlog now uses semi colon as separator.

Thanks, nice fix. I AM a programmer but I've never used Pascal. I guess now I have an excuse to learn it :)
