Ticket #1927 (closed bug: fixed)
Parrot doesn't build with spaces in directory name
|Reported by:||whiteknight||Owned by:||jkeenan|
I just tried building a fresh checkout of Parrot on Win32 in a directory with spaces in the name "C:/Documents and Settings/awhitworth/...". In the makefile and in config_lib.pir, this was mangled to "C:/Documents\ and\ Settings/awhitworth", which failed. In the config PMC, this was unescaped to "C:/Documents\\ and\\ Settings/awhitworth", which looks even worse.
Even after hand-editing the makefile and the config_lib.pir text, the build still does not complete because of issues finding include files.
When I copied my build directory to a path without spaces ("C:/Parrot"), it builds without issue.
