## Re: New behaviour with --output= option ?!

```Thanks to all Baileys!

```
I am pretty sure, I got an error with earlier releases when trying to output to a nonexisting folder - but be it as it is (or was)!
```what counts is to have a stable behaviour from now on.

```
for me personnally I will just produce default output and maybe in another step I will move files to other directories or I will simply use a filter in my explorer.
```
```
btw: I tried the version replacing the equal sign by a space and it also works under windows...
```

IIRC, when invoking lilypond, the option --output=folder directed all output
```files to the specific folder.

```
Now this has changed: If I run "lilypond --output=myOutput C: \myFile.ly" and
```there is no folder called "myOutput" I get 2 files:

myOutput.pdf and myOutput.ps in the folder where lilypond was running,

but if a folder exists with the name "myOutput" I get 2 files:

\myOutput\myFile.pdf and \myOutput\myFile.ps in that folder

what's the logic or intention?
```
```
```
iirc, this was always the way lily handled the output option. indeed, looking at the documentation for lily 2.1, the command line option --ouptut=FILE is described: "Set the default output file to FILE."
```
```
after running across this once or twice in larger projects i had an alias set up which checked if my default output directory exists and made it otherwise, then called lilypond. (btw, lilypond 2.11.42 [on mac] shows the same behaviour as you describe above).
```
regards,
sb

on a macintosh, at least, omitting the "=" solves the problem
