Ticket #850 (new patch)
Handle loadlib and libraries with '.' in the name
|Reported by:||jkeenan||Owned by:||whiteknight|
This ticket originally appeared in RT on Sep 23 2005 as RT #32758, a submission by Ross McFarland. It has not been resolved. chromatic looked at it in June 2008, noting that the latest version of the patch submitted by Ross did not synch up properly with our source code.
The original ticket cited an extensive discussion on the old perl6-internals list.
I am moving this ticket to Trac. I am attaching what I think was the last version of the patch submitted in the RT.
Could someone -- particularly someone on Win32 -- take a look at this and determine:
1. Is there still a problem needing resolution?
2. Can the patch be reworked to provide a solution?
Thank you very much.
