c++.idde - Problem with lib.exe

reply "Heinz-Peter Nüttgens" <hnuettgens t-online.de> writes:
I recently discovered a strange behaviour of the librarian.

Since a few days I use Windows XP and I tried to rebuild one of my
libraries.

I got the error message:

lib e:\libobj\$SCW$.LIB /C  C:\DOKUME~1\HEINZ-~1\LOKALE~1\Temp\70A30000.TMP
Error: e:\libobj\$SCW$.LIB(2147344384): Can't open 'C:\DOKUME~1\HEINZ' for
responses.   : No such file or directory
Errors: 1  Warnings: 0
Build failed

I solved this problem by changing the TEMP path from:
 %USERPROFILE%\Lokale Einstellungen\Temp
to:
%SystemRoot%\TEMP
and it worked again.

Therefore I assume that lib.exe cannot handle such long paths or has
problems with special chars like "HEINZ-~1"
in that path.

Is there a new version of lib.exe which can handle this or is there another
way to avoid this problem
without manually changing the environment?

Thanks for your reply.

The '-' sign is part of my name and my windows user name.
Ok, it would be easy to choose another username.

Because I'm workíng with the IDDE, it's not on me to select the syntax. But
nevertheless
this won't help anyway, because the '-' is part of the temporary path.

But shouldn't the command line of lib.exe be parsed in a way differentiating
between
embedded '-'s  and such ones following white spaces?

No, there's no way of fixing the meaning of '-' for lib. The trouble is that
Microsoft came up with that syntax long ago (long before '-' was allowed in
file names), and there are a LOT of makefiles depending on it.

The IDDE should switch to the new lib syntax, I'll file that bug report.

Had noticed the changed set of syntax for lib some time ago, but had to
switch to 'older' syntax.

The newer syntax gives problems in the most common situation for me: Just
replacing (or adding) a single module in a library, which may exist or which
needs to be created.

The older syntax automatically creates the lib if it does not exist. Using
the newer one, you have to specify -c, which deletes the existing library
(containing other objs) and creates a new one with just 1 obj in it.

Ps: Need makefile for complete statement of the problem or is this
sufficient description?
