A.5 UI Server: Specifying the input files to operate on.

All file related UI server commands operate on a number of input files or directories, specified by one or more FILE commands:

Command: FILE [--clear] name

Add the file or directory name to the list of pathnames to be processed by the server. The parameter name must be an absolute path name (including the drive letter) and is percent espaced (in particular, the characters %, = and white space characters are always escaped). If the option --clear is given, the list of files is cleared before adding name.

Historical note: The original spec did not define --clear but the keyword --continued after the file name to indicate that more files are to be expected. However, this has never been used and thus removed from the specs.
