1. Summarise the issue (what were doing, what went wrong?)
I just tried to run a test script:
darcs-test -t issue1234.sh
I got this result:
darcs-test: darcs-test: canonicalizePath: does not exist (No such file
2. What behaviour were you expecting instead?
I would expect this diagnostic to print out the path that's having
trouble constructing, so that I have an idea of how to fix it. Without
more detail, I have to resort to guessing to fix it.
3. What darcs version are you using? (Try: darcs --exact-version)
2.9.7 (+ 49 patches)
I discovered in my case that the problem had nothing to with the format
of the test file, as I assumed... it was having trouble having the
related darcs binary to use. I could workaround it like this:
darcs-test --darcs=/home/mark/bin/darcs -t issue2271-disable-patch-
It actually appears that the code in harness/test.sh intends to return a
better diagnostic if darcs can't be found:
"No darcs specified or found nearby. Perhaps --darcs
However, it appears than an uncaught exception is being thrown before
the code can get that far.
