you haven't said which compiler you're uisng. This appeared to work on my
vc-7_1 less than an hour ago.
I note the following:
from a cvs log of execnt.c:
revision 1.18
date: 2005/05/27 18:32:23; author: david_abrahams; state: Exp; lines: +6 -1
Workaround for vc6 preprocessor bug.
revision 1.17
date: 2005/05/27 17:06:30; author: david_abrahams; state: Exp; lines:
+128 -128
Finally, a real fix for the spawn problem, I hope.
from cvs annotate execnt.c
1.17 (david_ab 27-May-05):
1.17 (david_ab 27-May-05): {
1.17 (david_ab 27-May-05): char** argv =
string_to_args("\"g++\" -c -I\"Foobar\"");
1.17 (david_ab 27-May-05): assert(!strcmp(argv[0],
1.18 (david_ab 27-May-05):
1.18 (david_ab 27-May-05): /* Work around vc6 bug; it

1.18 (david_ab 27-May-05): assert(!strcmp(argv[1],
