I need MSVC help

[ #34704 ]

I'm helping David Cantrell with Devel::AssertLib -- particularly with Win32 portability.

I have a branch that passes tests on my Linux and Strawberry Perl platforms, and I've added code that I *think* should work with ActiveState and MSVC, but I don't have that platform set up anywhere.

I'd greatly appreciate if someone(s) would download the branch from my repository, try running tests and let me know what happens:

http://dagolden.googlecode.com/svn/shadow/Devel-AssertLib/branches/dagolden/

If it fails and you can patch it to work, that would be wonderful as well.

Thank you very much

  • It's failing currently. I'll see if I can fix it :)

    • Ah! The old "spaces in the PATH" trick. Either converting the system() call to array or else just calling the programs by their name instead of full path (after confirming they can be found in the full path) will probably do the trick.

      Thanks for looking into it so quickly.

    • It gets worse. Get the name of the compiler right (it has spaces in the name) and

      • Damn. Well, thanks very much for manually smoking this for me. I'll have to see about getting AS/MSVC up in a virtual machine and working this problem from there.
