Subject: UNIX-style filesystem paths not recognized under cygwin
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 1.7k
ENVIRONMENT: - Windows XP Home SP1 - uname -a: CYGWIN_NT-5.1 SLEEPWALK 1.5.10(0.116/4/2) 2004-05-25 22:07 i686 unknown unknown Cygwin - Perl v5.8.2 built for cygwin-thread-multi-64int, installed via cygwin setup.exe - DBD::SQLite 1.00, built under cygwin /bin/tcsh using "perl -MCPAN -e shell" with command "install DBD::SQLite". BEHAVIOR: - DBI->connect fails when database is specified with a UNIX-style file path (e.g., "/tmp/dbfile.db"). - DBI->connect succeeds when database is specified with a DOS-style file path (e.g., "D:\cygwin\tmp\dbfile.db") or with no path information ("dbfile.db"). NOTES: - I have confirmed that dbitest.db is created in specified location when DOS-style path is used and not created when UNIX-style path is used. UNIX-style paths should be valid when run under cygwin. SAMPLE CODE: #!/bin/perl use DBI; use strict; foreach my $dbfile (qw(dbitest.db d:\cygwin\tmp\dbitest.db /tmp/dbitest.db)) { my $data_source = "dbi:SQLite:$dbfile"; print "Opening data source '$data_source'\n"; my $dbh = DBI->connect($data_source, "", "") || die $DBI::errstr; print "Opened $dbfile\n"; print "SQLite version $dbh->{sqlite_version}\n"; $dbh->disconnect; print "Closed $dbfile\n\n"; } SAMPLE OUTPUT: % ./ Opening data source 'dbi:SQLite:dbitest.db' Opened dbitest.db SQLite version 3.0.2 Closed dbitest.db Opening data source 'dbi:SQLite:d:\cygwin\tmp\dbitest.db' Opened d:\cygwin\tmp\dbitest.db SQLite version 3.0.2 Closed d:\cygwin\tmp\dbitest.db Opening data source 'dbi:SQLite:/tmp/dbitest.db' DBI connect('/tmp/dbitest.db','',...) failed: unable to open database file(1) at dbdimp.c line 57 at /home/Ernie/ line 12 unable to open database file(1) at dbdimp.c line 57 at /home/Ernie/ line 12.

Can you open unix-style paths under cygwin using the sqlite commandline client? Looks more like a problem with the sqlite library rather than DBD::SQLite, but DBD::SQLite could certainly correct the issue (wrong solution if you ask me)

*** Warning: whitespace characters in the current directory path (/cygdrive/c/Documents and Settings/root/Application Data/.cpanplus/5.8.7/build/DBD-SQLite-1.09) may cause problems Please note the following message that is posted across the screen when DBD::SQLite is installed. Whitespace characters in the current name still screw up some Cygwin programs.
This is believed to now be working. Resolving this ticket.
