Subject: whole-name-quoted filename can't be read
While adding support for quoted filenames (names with spaces) to Dist::Zilla, I found this bug in ExtUtils::Manifest. If you have a filename that begins and ends with quotes, and you enquote it as suggested, it is not properly dequoted. use strict; use ExtUtils::Manifest qw(maniread); --- my $manifest_content = <<'END_MANIFEST'; '\'quoted name.txt\'' END_MANIFEST { open my $fh, '>', 'MANIFEST' or die; print $fh $manifest_content; } my $manifest = maniread; print "$_\n" for keys %$manifest; --- This should print: 'quoted name.txt' Instead, it prints: quoted name.txt' -- rjbs

Since ExtUtils-Manifest is now maintained in the Perl 5 core distribution, I have opened a ticket for this issue there: https://rt.perl.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=122415 This ticket is now superseded and may be closed. Thank you very much. Jim Keenan
