Description Need Real Name 2002-11-06 14:31:37 UTC
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):

How Reproducible:

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. 

Actual Results:

Expected Results:

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.

Comment 2 Tom Tromey 2002-11-14 23:11:01 UTC
I believe this is fixed in the current build

Comment 3 Need Real Name 2002-11-15 15:21:15 UTC
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.
