Spaces in Tomcat install directory name causes CGI failure 

           Summary: Spaces in Tomcat install directory name causes CGI
                    failure
           Product: Tomcat 4
           Version: 4.0.4 Final
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT/2K
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: Servlets:CGI
        AssignedTo: tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: gordon.degrandis@ing.be


If the Tomcat default install directory is used on Windows (NT/W2k/XP) the 
default name causes CGI scripts not to function. 
The default install name for Tomcat is:
<drive>:\Program Files\Apache Tomcat 4.0\
In our case the install name is:
<drive>:\soft\AR2\Apache Tomcat 4.0\

If a CGI script that uses Perl is used within this installation the result from 
the CGI is output on the web page. The result on the web page is:
Can't open perl script "<drive>:\soft\AR2\Apache": No such file or directory

The message contains the installation directory name for Tomcat up to the first 
blank character. 
The CGI path name once evaluated by Tomcat is:
<drive>:\soft\AR2\Apache Tomcat 4.0\webapps\adaptive\WEB-INF\Cgi\exp.cgi

There does not seem to be a way to change this behaviour in the standard Tomcat 
product.

Other information is available on request. I have the CGI script and all the 
log files.

Thank you
