Special characters '=' and '#' are not allowed. Everything before the '='
character is considered an alias name and everything after that (till the
endline mark) is considered a file name. Spaces and tabs are trimmed. Quoted
names are not supported. There are no pathname length restrictions that I'm
aware of (except the MAXPATHLEN define).
