Subject: Build manifest and filenames with spaces
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 113b
When using ./Build MANIFEST and ./Build dist, the dist process chokes if manifest adds any filenames with spaces.
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 304b
Spaces and tabs are simply not allowed in MANIFEST filenames. This isn't a M::B limitation, it's a limitation of the file format and documented in ExtUtils::Manifest. Perhaps we should croak/complain earlier in the process (e.g. during the 'manifest' action rather than in the 'dist' action). -Ken

Actually, I misspoke - we actually call ExtUtils::Manifest::mkmanifest() to create the MANIFEST file, so the bug must reside there. It's creating MANIFEST files that are invalid. I suggest re- opening the bug in that queue (the ExtUtils-MakeMaker queue) and I'll mark it as "rejected" in our queue. -Ken

Actually there's already a report that's filed on this matter with ExtUtils[1]. It seems that Schwern is waiting for a patch. I may get around to that if it gets to be too painful.
