Subject: Windows install (Stawberry Perl) fails on long path names

I have Oracle instant client installed at C:\Program Files\Oracle\InstantClient\ When attempting to install DBD::Oracle I received errors complaining about Files\Oracle\InstantClient\SDK and similar. This was caused by a commandline containing: gcc ... -IC:\Program Files\Oracle\InstantClient\SDK\ gcc was interpreting the command as include C:\Program and compile Files\Oracle\InstantClient\SDK\ Adding some extra quotes to Makefile.PL fixed this up for me. Lines 284 and 285 were my $OCIINCLUDE = "-I$OH/$OCIDIR/include -I$OH/rdbms/demo"; $opts{INC} = "$OCIINCLUDE -I$dbi_arch_dir"; I modified them to be my $OCIINCLUDE = "-I\"$OH/$OCIDIR/include\" -I\"$OH/rdbms/demo\""; $opts{INC} = "$OCIINCLUDE -I\"$dbi_arch_dir\""; Running Perl 5.10.1 as distributed by Strawberry Perl, compiled Jan 26 2010.
