backticks `wx-config --cflags`

`wx-config --cflags` doesn't work when compiler is invoked directly.  this has something to do with how the compiler is executed.

system("command");

would solve this.  calling the compiler using system() correctly passes the command to the underlying OS shell which handles "" in pathnames, spaces, eval() type stuff (like `s).

Not sure if all environments/OSes support this properly.
Should be looked into

I was wondering if this is likely to be fixed soon as I have some serious problems getting my projects to link without using library scripts. or is there a workaround?

thanks for any suggestions/info and keep up the good work!

You can as well compile using makefiles. There's an option in the compiler settings.

Go to Settings->Compiler->Other and set the build mode to "GNU make". Backticks work with it.
Be patient!
This bug will be fixed soon...

I suppose you're working on your Indiana Jones game, tell us when it's playable! ;-)
