Subject: [boost] Help with VMS port of CMake

I am trying to port CMake to VMS. For the first pass I am going to use
the GNV tools and gmake. I am very close, but I am having trouble
with files that have more than one "." in the name. CMake uses files
like that in several places, as do many CMake based projects.

Assuming I use POSIX paths on VMS, does anyone on this list know what
magic the GNV cat program uses to handle the following:

This works:
cat /idisk1/devel/

I wrote a simple C++ program that uses fstream to open argv[1], and get
the following results:

These work:
./test. Windows-cl^
./test. idisk1:[devel]Windows-cl^

This does not:
./test. /idisk1/devel/

Any help would be appreciated. Sorry if this is not very boost
related, but in previous CMake discussions on the list the topic of VMS
came up, so I thought there might be someone that could help me out.
