Anything I can do about this - quotes don't work - or do I have to
change my naming convention to recls-dm.lib?

Ok, well delving through other projects shows that I can get what I want
by using LINK directly and specifying the .lib extension.

So, the bug seems to be that DMC strips the .lib automatically. Can I
request that either (i) it leaves the .lib extension on in all cases, or
(ii) in cases where there is a . in the file name?

Cheers

Matthew
