Hi Module::Starter::PBP v0.0.3 breaks on windows standard home directories, of the form C:\Documents and Settings\<user>. 1. in setup, the default template_dir value is derived from $ENV{HOME}. On windows, this can be derived from $ENV{USERPROFILE} 2. in module creation, the t_guts method breaks on template_dirs with spaces in them due to the file glob. for my $test_file ( map { s{\A .*/t/}{}xms; $_; } glob "$self->{template_dir}/t/*" ) { This can be fixed by converting the template_dir on setup to an 8.3 (non-space) directory. The following diff addresses these 2 issues. 153a153,157 Show quoted text

Thanks, Jim Graham

A one-liner to convert long space-polluted Windows path names to ugly, space-free 8.3 filenames is: perl -e "use Win32; my $longdir=q{C:\Documents and Settings\Username\.module-starter\PBP}; print Win32::GetShortPathName($longdir), qq{\n};" Caveat: The path must already exist for this to work.

i set MODULE_STARTER_DIR to C:\ and template_dir to C:\.module-starter and it worked. I didn't like this solution, though. I am still wondering whether it has any drawbacks, as i can copy-paste my template directory wherever i want after that. On Mon Dec 22 15:52:04 2008, arclight wrote: Show quoted text
