Used go-pear.bat last night.  The go-pear.php file version is $Id: go-pear,v 1.48 2003/08/12 21:44:02 pajoye Exp $

I set the "Installation prefix" using safe 8.3 file/path name: "c:\progra~1\pear"

But, the program, or the cute file finder dialog box procedure, turns it into "C:\Program Files\pear"

Using the 8.3 path names avoids problems in the long run.  It would be nice if PEAR allowed such user input to remain rather than converting it.

The win32 dialog box convert it, not us.

If you like to use 8.3 path, use the "All" to set manually the datas.
