Fixed bug 5044 - CMake messes up hidapi path when project directory contains spaces

Eric Jing

When the project directory path contains spaces, CMake butchers the include path for the hidapi files.

I traced the problem to the cmake/sdlchecks.cmake file at line 1091, which sets flags for the build process. I surrounded the problem flag with double quotes, shown below, and CMake works with spaces in the project directory path.
     1 if (NOT EXISTS "@CMAKE_BINARY_DIR@/install_manifest.txt")
     2     message(FATAL_ERROR "Cannot find install manifest: \"@CMAKE_BINARY_DIR@/install_manifest.txt\"")
     3 endif(NOT EXISTS "@CMAKE_BINARY_DIR@/install_manifest.txt")
     5 file(READ "@CMAKE_BINARY_DIR@/install_manifest.txt" files)
     6 string(REGEX REPLACE "\n" ";" files "${files}")
     7 foreach (file ${files})
     8     message(STATUS "Uninstalling \"$ENV{DESTDIR}${file}\"")
     9     execute_process(
    10         COMMAND @CMAKE_COMMAND@ -E remove "$ENV{DESTDIR}${file}"
    11         OUTPUT_VARIABLE rm_out
    12         RESULT_VARIABLE rm_retval
    13     )
    14     if(NOT ${rm_retval} EQUAL 0)
    15         message(FATAL_ERROR "Problem when removing \"$ENV{DESTDIR}${file}\"")
    16     endif (NOT ${rm_retval} EQUAL 0)
    17 endforeach(file)
