Re: Re: basic question - space in file name



I have a file named "Release Notes.txt" in a Linux (RHEL 3) environment.  The Perl module I'm using successfully creates a SPEC file with the name of the file either double quoted or escaped.  
 
The following is an excerpt of the results in test area where the file name is escaped....
 
+ cd Test-1.0
+ mkdir -p /home/pflore/TestArea/rpm_buildroot/software
+ cp -fR products /home/pflore/TestArea/rpm_buildroot/software
+ /usr/lib/rpm/brp-compress
+ /usr/lib/rpm/brp-strip
+ /usr/lib/rpm/brp-strip-static-archive
+ /usr/lib/rpm/brp-strip-comment-note
Processing files: Test-1.0-1
error: Two files on one line: /software/products/Test/A\
error: File must begin with "/": definite\
error: Two files on one line: /software/products/Test/A\
error: File must begin with "/": problem.txt

RPM build errors:
    Two files on one line: /software/products/Test/A\
    File must begin with "/": definite\
    Two files on one line: /software/products/Test/A\
    File must begin with "/": problem.txt
genrpm: RPM Build return
genrpm: DIE! ERROR! No rpms found! Check "/home/pflore/TestArea/rpm_buildroot" for the correct files.
The error message is consistent whether the spaces are escaped or double quoted....
 
If you'd like a copy of the code reply to me seperately and I'll send you the Perl module....

Doesn't work for me:

spec:
Source3: "mk dump rd"

rpmbuild:
error: line 10: Tag takes single token only: Source3: "mk dump rd"

'mk dump rd' and mk\ dump\ rd also don't work.

Note that I'm not the original poster, but I think this was the case he
was refering to.
