Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 77399
spaces in project names
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:48:11 EDT
Description of Problem:
When creating a C/C++ project, spaces are not accepted as valid characters in
the project name. But a simple project can be created with spaces in its name
then converted to a C/C++ project using the respective wizard. If this can work,
there must be some way to get standard make C/C++ projects to also accept spaces
in project names.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.create a standard make C project. Will not accept spaces in the project name
2. create a simple project called "Simple project"
3. create a C project and choose the Simple to C wizard. Pick "Simple Project"
as the candidate for conversion. It is successfully converted to a C project.
Put files in the converted project...building, running, debugging...all work fine.
I've asked the CDT developers about this restriction.
It is easy to remove, but I don't want to do so until
I understand why it exists.
I believe this is fixed in the current build
Fixed. Verified against the November 15th build. All project names can have
spaces in them except at the beginning and end of the name.
Changing product to RHEL.
