It appears to be common to split on ; and your program is no exception.

It doesn't appear to handle quoted path names, which are valid, both the "pa;th" and "pa th"\"of space" variety

shell commands (copy paste into cmd.exe):
md "pa;th" echo @echo how the pa;th are ya > "pa;th"\pathme.bat pathme set path="pa;th";%path% pathme md "pa;th"\"of space" echo @echo how the pa;th\of space are ya > "pa;th\of space"\ +t pathem set path="pa;th"\"of space";%path% pathem
C:\>md "pa;th" C:\>echo @echo how the pa;th are ya > "pa;th"\pathme.bat C:\>pathme 'pathme' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. C:\>set path="pa;th";%path% C:\>pathme how the pa;th are ya C:\>md "pa;th"\"of space" C:\>echo @echo how the pa;th\of space are ya > "pa;th\of space"\pathe +m.bat C:\>pathem 'pathem' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. C:\>set path="pa;th"\"of space";%path% C:\>pathem how the pa;th\of space are ya C:\>
