From Paul.Moore@uk.origin-it.com

There seems to be a problem with the "system LIST" command on Win32.

The following 1-line test program

  system "$^X -e \"print 1\"";

correctly prints a "1".

The (supposedly equivalent)

  system $^X, "-e", "print 1";

prints nothing.

During a cleanup of the perlbug database, this report you
filed was found. Can you please describe what you feel is
the current status of this bug, whether it has been fixed
in a newer version, and whether this report should remain
open or can be closed?

There seems to be a problem with the "system LIST" command on Win32.

The following 1-line test program

 system "$^X \-e \\"print 1\\"";

correctly prints a "1".

The (supposedly equivalent)

 system $^X\, "\-e"\, "print 1";

prints nothing.

Thanks for the reminder. The problem is still outstanding in 5.6.0. As I
understand it, this requires a fairly significant reorganisation of the
internals of system/exec for Win32 (reflecting the fact that on Windows,
executing a command line is the fundamental operation, as opposed to Unix
where executing an argv array is the fundamental operation).

When I raised the bug, I looked at what would be involved in fixing it, but
it's beyond my capabilities/available time.

I believe that this bug should remain open.

Paul.
