I trying to run a make command in bash prompt and gives the following error everytime.

"cant open perl script "C:\program " no such file or directory.

I have installed perl and it is present in c:/perl folder. I have added it to the path variable also. Still the error comes.

Also there is no C:program directory ..there is only C: program files.....

Not sure what the error is pointing to.

Please help resolve the error.

Use double quotes around the path or escape the spaces in it with a back-slash.

Code: [ Select ]
"c:/program files/perl/"

Code: [ Select ]
c:/program\ files/perl/

Whatever you're entering the path to the script into is probably getting to the space in the filename between program and files thinking it's the end of the argument/filename.
