Excuse the cryptic title, but it does pretty well describe my problem. I've lately switched boxes and decided to get around to fixing some annoying 5.8x warnings that my PGN modules produce only to run into the following:
Couldn't open 'C:/Perl/site/lib/Chess/PGN/db/ECO': No such file or dir
Compilation failed in require at C:\Cygwin\home\hsmyers\pgn\toEPD.pl l
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at C:\Cygwin\home\hsmyers\pgn\toEPD.
+pl line 7.
Now having just put the file in question into the location in question clearly I was not pleased with this error! Skipping lightly over the amount of wasted time involved I determined that XP doesn't let you use forward slashes interchangeably with backward slashes as in all previous situations.
So it comes to this; am I crazy and have missed the real problem? Or am I right and this is the problem. In any event, does anyone know of a work-around?
