I accidentally ran prove before renaming a "Copy of foo.t" file on a Win32 workstation. prove failed that test, noting 't\util\Copy of test....Can't open perl script "t\util\Copy": No such file or directory' Possibly there's a split on space going on? Spaces in filenames are evil, but they should probably be handled more gracefully.

No, it's an issue with how DOS handles file name splitting. Maybe I'll do something to get things quoted nicely. xoa -- Andy Lester => andy@petdance.com => www.petdance.com => AIM:petdance
2.35_01 now quotes the filename being tested. Please let me know how it works for you.

O:\projects\tvland>prove -I lib -r t/core t\core\constructors........ok t\core\the constructors....ok t\core\uniq................ok All tests successful. Files=3, Tests=11, 2 wallclock secs ( 0.00 cusr + 0.00 csys = 0.00 CPU) Confirmed: Insane users are now free to have tests with spacey names.
