in thread Fibonacci numbers using regexes (threes are wild)

I haven't used windows in about 10 years, but a voice in my head says that windows may not support single quotes for command-line arguments. Try using double quotes instead? In unix systems, double quotes will cause $variables to be interpolated so I used single quotes.

    Thanks, it works now, I keep forgetting about those pesky double quotes.

    30 was pretty fast for me, but 48 is taking a bit of time...

[stevieb]:'re testing is a test system itself. 10+ documented issues fixed, another half dozen found while fixing the original ones. I'm getting there...
[stevieb]: Then throw in changes to Windows that throws everything you trusted right out the window.
[shmem]: that's why it is called "Windows"
[stevieb]: shmem thanks for the 'insight' :P
[shmem]: good thing that Sun already took "OpenWindows", otherwise I'd not stop to shudder imagining an "OpenWindows" from MS
[shmem]: more garbage in, more garbage out that would be
[stevieb]: I found that win10 broke a C# library I was using for one project while enhancing tests for a Perl dist, which breaks other Perl dists, and I'm about to throw my hands up on berrybrew. win2k12 broke one thing, win10 breaks something...
[stevieb]: ...unrelated which requires replacing a lot of code and a whole lib. I'm about to go nix only ffs
[shmem]: stevieb: what you're doing sounds afwully complex. Too much for me this evening to provide brighter insight ;-)
[stevieb]: I don't even own a Windows computer. Both my girl and I have a laptop each with Linux. I'm supporting Windows in some of my projects and I can't even guage whether it's worth it or not.
