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...


...will it resolve that to...

C:\testFolder1\testFolder2 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...


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


...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?
