a backslash in alias seems to be a problem,

this alias does not work with isql
e:\db.fdb=/db/db.fdb

this alias works fine with isql
e:/db.fdb=/db/db.fdb

aditional Infos from Alex Peshkoff:

This is a bug in aliases parser - slash is replaced to OS-specific slash in alias to resolve,
but not replaced in an alias read from aliases.conf. I.e. if you write
e/db.fdb=/db/db.fdb
both e/db.fdb & e\db.fdb will work from isql

based on my tests, using / in alias definitions can really be used as \ from commandline,
but isql for example on linux needs " around connection string

Entry in aliases.conf

e:/db.fdb=/db/db.fdb

succcessful connections:

root@IFS01:/opt/firebird/bin#⁠ ./isql "127.0.0.1:e/db.fdb" -user SYSDBA -password masterkey
Database: 127.0.0.1:e/db.fdb, User: SYSDBA
SQL> exit;

root@IFS01:/opt/firebird/bin#⁠ ./isql "127.0.0.1:e:\db.fdb" -user SYSDBA -password masterkey
Database: 127.0.0.1:e:\db.fdb, User: SYSDBA
SQL>

Need in quotes on linux when backslash (\) is used is not firebird but OS feature - shell tries to parse \+char sequences itself and isql receives the result of it, i.e.

localhost bin #⁠ echo "127.0.0.1:e:\db.fdb"
127.0.0.1:e:\db.fdb
localhost bin #⁠ echo 127.0.0.1:e:\db.fdb
127.0.0.1:e:db.fdb
