Possible docs bug - https://winscp.net/eng/docs/integration_putty

In this guide there is a command for kitty to cd in to the current dir.

https://winscp.net/eng/docs/integration_putty

kitty.exe -cmd "cd ""!/"""

This works fine until my path has unicode characters.

It appears that when a path has these characters WinSCP wraps them in double quotes independently of the command which then breaks the command.

Using the command in this path:

Sigur Rós - Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust

Gives this error.

If I change the command to this it appears to fix the issue:

-cmd "cd '!/'"

I can now successfully launch kitty and cd into any directory I like included paths with spaces and or unicode characters.[/code]

It's not the Unicode, but the space. But anyway, you are right.

I have edited the documentation. Thanks for your post.
