forward-slash resolution to back-slash

May 12, 2008 at 3:40 PM
Does this tool provide forwards-slash resolution to backwards-slash?

That is, if I tell it to include in a new zip the following folder...

C:/testFolder1/testFolder2

...will it resolve that to...

C:\testFolder1\testFolder2

...in the same way that, for example, Windows Explorer interprets both variations as the same?

Please advise.

(I am doing some testing-- but, my tests are inconclusive right now and I thought you might just know the answer off the top of your head.)

Thank you.

All --

BTW, my testing suggests that the tool does not auto-resolution from forward-slash to back-slash.

Actually, it looks like if one gives it something like this...

C:/testFolder1/testFolder2

...and the real folder is this...

C:\testFolder1\testFolder2

...then the tool continues without error but produces an invalid zip file.

If this is the case, then I humbly suggest that the tool should either throw an error or auto-correct, (where auto-correct would be ideal).

What do you think?

Please advise.

Thank you.

I just tried this.

In my tests when I add a file with forward slashes, the zip file that is produced, is fine?

can you give me some test code that reproduces the problem you are reporting?
