|Subject:||mingw32-make does not find prerequisites in VPATH when they have forward slashes|
|Date:||Thu, 16 Jun 2016 18:35:17 -0600|
I am working on a project with two directory trees: one for sources and another for output files. I run mingw-make from the source tree and add the output tree root to VPATH so that their files can be found when acting as prerequisites. But it doesn’t so when such prerequisites specify their path from the root with forward slashes. It gives me the error “cannot open input file”. However, if I change the forward slashes for backslashes, then it works.
I suppose this should not be happening for portability reasons.
