[issue17023] Subprocess does not find executable on Windows if it is PATH with quotes

2015-02-04 Thread Tim Golden
Tim Golden added the comment: Under the covers, subprocess is calling CreateProcess so there's really not very much we can do here, short of writing our own PATH-handling. As a matter of fact, passing shell=True will produce the desired effect. Since the only thing this does is to run

Tim Golden added the comment: I think we should simply take out the example, ie the part in brackets. The statement remains true but I don't think we need to cast around for whichever OS / filesystem happens to implement this particular setup. -- nosy: +tim.golden

2015-01-17 Thread Tim Golden
Tim Golden added the comment: I'm +0.75. I think the idea's fine in principle and the patch (by inspection) seems to do the right things. My only concerns are: that posixmodule.c becomes even longer and more involved; and that the benefit might not quite be great enough to justify the added

2014-12-16 Thread Tim Golden
Tim Golden added the comment: I agree that this is a fragile assertion; it's too far removed from the CreateFileMapping call which can generate it and almost impossible to work around (in calling code) if it should fail in the way we're seeing in the buildbot. I think we're better off relying
