Hi all,

Would someone please advise me how can I resolve this problem:

I would like to find a file in a directory through a shell command:

;; Get the newest version of file
(setq file (string (shell command "ls -tc C:\\dir1\\dir2\\dir3/file*.txt | head -1")))

;; Put the file is a windows
  (find-file-other-window file)

The problem is that either Emacs or Windows can't interpret the full
file name along with directory path correctly and I don't know how to
fix it?
