           Summary: Type.GetType() can't load assemblies containing spaces
    Classification: Mono

Apologies if this is a dup, but I didn't see anything relevant.

The program:

  using System;

  public class Test {
    public static void Main ()
      Console.WriteLine (typeof(Test).AssemblyQualifiedName);
      Console.WriteLine (Type.GetType (typeof(Test).AssemblyQualifiedName)
          != null);

The compilation:

  $ gmcs "/out:a b.exe" file.cs

The execution:

  $ mono "a b.exe"
  Test, a b, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null

The problem: Type.GetType() returns null (hence the second line of output being

Expected behavior: Type.GetType() returns non-null, and True is printed on the
second line.

NET supports assembly names containing spaces, and will print out True for the
above program.

Further note: .NET also supports *leading* whitespace in the assembly name,
e.g. `gmcs "/out: a b.exe" file.cs` to generate the assembly " a b.exe".  When
leading whitespace is present, the AssemblyQualifiedName contains embedded

    Test, " a b", Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null
