Subject: recent glob expansion breakage on Windows?
Date: Thu, 8 Mar 2018 22:02:15 +0100
Message-ID: <e0ba9fb9-056e-4979-415b-f8eca47e2490@redhat.com> (raw)

Hi,

Jaben reports that git-send-email is suddenly failing to expand the
"*.patch" glob for him, at the Windows CMD prompt:

---------
E:\...>git send-email --suppress-cc=author --suppress-cc=self
--suppress-cc=cc --suppress-cc=sob --dry-run *.patch

No patch files specified!
---------

Whereas, moving the same patch files to another subdir, and then passing
the subdir to git-send-email, works fine.

I seem to have found some $^O based perl code in the git tree that
expands the glob manually (in place of the shell) on Windows -- however,
that code looks ancient ^W very stable, and doesn't seem to explain the
sudden breakage.

Is it possible that a separate perl update on Jaben's Windows box is
causing this? Or does the breakage look consistent with a recent git change?

Has anyone else reported something similar recently?

Thanks (and sorry about the noise; this list might not be the best place
to ask)!
Laszlo
