Subject: Strawberry Perl (5.16.1.1-32bit)
Date: Sat, 18 Aug 2012 01:33:15 -0400
To: bug-Perl-Dist-Strawberry@rt.cpan.org
From: Lou godio <lgodio2@gmail.com>
I'm running under bWindows XP (SP3)
Strawberry Perl (5.16.1.1-32 bit) installed ok 

But every time I run cpanm, it fails at the last line shown in the log file below i.e
dmake.exe:  Error: -- `C:\Documents' not found, and can't be made
It appears that dmake cant handle dir names like
C:\Documents and Settings\ADMIN/

I never had this issue with DWIMPERL 5.14 which used a different work dir 
so I think it's a Strawberry 5.16 bug 

==============================

cpanm (App::cpanminus) 1.5017 on perl 5.016001 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread
Work directory is C:\Documents and Settings\ADMIN/.cpanm/work/1345266512.2736
You have make C:\strawberry\c\bin\dmake.exe
You have LWP 6.04

This bug is a combination of: 1/ dmake not working corectly with directories containing spaces 2/ cpanminus using your homedir as working directory Unfortunately it is not a problem on Win 7 (home directory is something like c:\users\bob - no spaces) where I run my pre-release tests. Quick workaround: set PERL_CPANM_HOME=C:\Temp\Cpanm Anyway needs to fixed in the next release. -- kmx

I have (maybe) a fix, please try to install: http://strawberryperl.com/package/kmx/perl-modules-patched/App-cpanminus-1.5017_fixed_issue132.tar.gz Use pip utility, like this: c:\> pip <url_to_tarball> -- kmx
should be fixed in the latest 5.14.3.1 and 5.16.2.1
