Specs: 2K SP4, AMD Ath 64X2 2GB
This:

findstr /b \" before > log

gives me the lines found and this:

FINDSTR: Cannot open log

What am I missing here?

A second double quote, according to CMD's command line parser.

OR: Congrat's on finding a bug in CMD.

For reference, I find this works (On XP SP3):

type before | findstr /b "\" > log
