Hi, This is a limitation of the MANIFEST file. Here are docs from ExtUtils::Manifest: Anything between white space and an end of line within a "MANIFEST" file is considered to be a comment. Filenames and comments are sepa- rated by one or more TAB characters in the output. So it looks like it's an intentional feature of that module and you'll have to change the filename. -Ken
