Ticket #865 (closed defect: worksforme)
Can't use command line options containing spaces
|Reported by:||bos||Owned by:|
I found myself wanting the other day to pass some specific RTS options to GHC on the command line, with those options varying depending on the version of GHC:
ghc-options: --with-rtsopts="-N -qg"
However, Cabal doesn't tokenize command line options, and GHC doesn't treat multiple --with-rtsopts arguments as building up a single string, so I found myself stuck. (I know about the "specify the options in a .c file, and that's what I did, but it's less elegant.)
