#6399 new defect

FFREPORT doesn't support drive letters on Win32 due to parsing separator

Reported by: horshack Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: undetermined
Version: unspecified Keywords: FFREPORT windows win32 colon separator
Cc: Blocked By:
Blocking: Reproduced by developer: no
Analyzed by developer: no


Summary of the bug:

The FFREPORT environmental variable can't support a drive letter in the path to the log file (Windows systems) due to the use of ':' as a field separator. For example, FFREPORT=file=c:\temp\log.txt:loglevel=56 gets interpreted as a filename of only "c"

How to reproduce:
Set FFREPORT to a path including a drive letter. Look for the resulting "Report written to <x>" message in the output, where <x> is the drive letter in the path.

FYI, this would be an issue for OSX as well since it supports colons in its directory and filenames, although more easily avoidable than on Win32.
