Subject: Problem in ExtUtils::MakeMaker, dmake & libs in paths with brackets ()
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 568b
There's a problem with current ExtUtil::MakeMakers writing Makefiles which dmake/gcc can't process. If you need to pass a -I flag to gcc via CCFLAGS for a directory with brackets in (e.g. "-Ic:\program files (x86)\foo\include") the brackets are escaped by ExtUtils::MM_Unix but not unescaped by dmake when it calls gcc. I've reported this to ExtUtils::MakeMaker also along with a patch which at least avoids the issue: http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html? id=68679 Thanks for all the work on Strawberry Perl, it makes me remarkably happy.

I cannot reproduce this old bug report. Feel free to post any update otherwise I will close this RT two weeks from now.
