Boostc Wont Build Project...

Recommended Posts

Bug description:

After creating a new project, which contained spaces in the source code (c, asm and hex) the build command wouldn't run. But compiling and then linking the project's working well.



Steps to reproduce:

Create a new Project, for example "The Bug" an then try to build it. It'll show you these error-lines:

"FATAL: don't know how to make: "The Bug.c"



Expected behaviour:

The Program should compile and link the source code, like it allways does.


Is the problem 100% reproduceable:

Yep, it is 100% reproduceable



IDE version: SourceBoost IDE version 5.7.1

Compiler: BoostC

Compiler version: Compiler version 1.8 Alpha

Target device: PIC18F452 & PIC16F630

OS: Windows XP Professional



In my opinion there are three solutions for this Problem:

1) to forbid using spaces in the name of a project (and so also in the name of the source code)

2) to allow the use of spaces, but removing the spaces from the names of the source

3) to change the programm, so it also can build source codes, which have spaces in their names.



Ok, I know, that it isn't a really big deal, but it's a little bit annoying/frightening, if the programm just says, "No, I can't do that". And it took me around half a day to find the error...





P.S.: Sorry for my english, I'm not a nativ speaker... :(
