(270/314) 706497 - JCompile creates paths with spaces that javac can not handle

When I compile a .java file using JCompile in a path that
windows recognizes as having spaces, javac can not
handle paths containing space(s). When I enter any
paths, I use the dos designations without spaces. Jedit
or JCompile converts the dos paths into windows paths
(containing spaces). Then, when the string is passed to
javac, javac chokes on it.
I am attaching a zip file that contains the following:
Doc2.doc - screen shots of:
jedit's call of javac;
the resulting Consul window of the javac call;
the CLASSPATH value set from the env var.
system.txt - the startup log of jedit

Please contact me at or

As the screenshots indicate this is not JCompiler, it is the
Console plugin with the 'javac' commando.

Filenames with spaces are not a problem in JCompiler.
Console must be fixed.
