Subject: Fails on Windows with message: '""' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
On up-to-date Windows 10, installing GPS::Babel via cpanm fails with multiple messages '""' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. from the tests. See attached build.log. Force-installing (cpanm --force GPS::Babel) and then executing use Modern::Perl; use GPS::Babel; use YAML::Any qw(Dump); my $babel = GPS::Babel->new; my $data = $babel->read('20120628.gdb'); print Dump($data); in the directory with the named file yields '""' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. 'C:\Program Files (x86)\GPSBabel\gpsbabel.EXE' failed (256) DIAGNOSIS: Line 61 of lib/GPS/Babel.pm in sub GPS::Babel::_with_babel reads: @args = ( '"' . join( '" "', map { s/"/""/g } @args ) . '"' ); The values that the map call returns end up in @args, but those values are the values returned by the s/// calls which indicate the number of substitutions made, not the substitution results. If @args starts out as ('aa', 'bb', 'cc') then it ends up as ('"" "" ""'). One solution is to change map { s/"/""/g } to map { s/"/""/g; $_ }. Another solution is to change map { s/"/""/g } to map { s/"/""/gr }, but the "r" modifier isn't available for Perl versions before 5.14, so the first solution is more portable. And a third solution is to change the entire line to map { s/"/""/g } @args; @args = ( '"' . join( '" "', @args ) . '"' ) That one works because the values returned by the map call are discarded but the effect of the s/// calls on the @args elements remains. If I apply the first solution then my test script succeeds and produces results that look good.
