  1. L.S.
    When experimenting with this nice Poppins software, I came across below snippet in the .ini file.

    ” /home/poppins/contains\ spaces = contains\ spaces ”
    I can’t find any explanation on the meaning of this config rule.
    In the meantime, it does cause a fatal runtime error.
    So, what exactly am I supposed to do with it?

    Tia for your reply

    1. Hello Jan,

      Thank you for your feedback. It is just an example. In this case, it is demonstrated how to configure poppins in case the directory contains spaces.
