I tried to type in a cs2cs command and OSGeo4W shell did not accept it. When I pasted it from the text on the web it did accept it (see screenshot - command executed is the one pasted and command resulting with an error is the one typed in). suggestions?

Command resulting with an error is the one typed in as opposed to pasted[![][1]]1

You have written ESPG instead of EPSG.

We're looking for long answers that provide some explanation and context. Don't just give a one-line answer; explain why your answer is right, ideally with citations. Answers that don't include explanations may be removed.

    BTW it is worth remembering that EPSG stands for European Petroleum Survey Group. I've eventually memorized the full name because I used to make the same mistake frequently. – thibautg Oct 3 '15 at 12:28
