Hi All.

I was trying to compile some C code from Perl, using MS-VS-2003.
So I did something like:
$x = `c:\\progr... long path...\\bin\\cl.exe params..`;
it actually complained, (didn't like the spaces) so I did:
$x = `"c:\\progr... long path...\\bin\\cl.exe" params..`;
and it did not complained. actually, it did nothing. silently failed.
