Description Jonathan Pryor 2016-02-09 22:43:56 UTC
mkbundle doesn't support bundling programs and/or assemblies which contain spaces in their name, for example "My App.exe".

Attempting to do so causes `as` to error due to an unexpected token:

> as -m32 -o temp.o temp.s 
> temp.s:2:27: error: unexpected token in directive
>         .globl _assembly_data_My App_exe

Notice that the space in the assembly name appears as-is in the assembly symbol, and isn't escaped or encoded in any way.
