DescriptionIn the makeglossaries Perl script, after reading the aux file, a regular expression substitution exists to remove double-quotes from within
$istfile. However, it is only for
$istfileswhich use the .ist extension. If using xindy, the
$istfilewill have a .xdy extension. This causes the regexp to find no matches, thus leaving the double-quotes and subsequently producing errors. The regexp needs to be modified to also handle .xdy files. The solution is as follows. Replace the line:
$istfile=~s/^"(.*)"\.ist$/$1.ist/;with the following line:
$istfile=~s/^"(.*)"\.(ist|xdy)$/$1.$2/;This will correctly handle both .ist and .xdy extensions, and will finally allow those using xindy to use pathnames with spaces.
Thanks. This has now be fixed in makeglossaries v2.12. (Distributed with glossaries v4.03)
