Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-423) file paths are not normalized
Date Thu, 07 Sep 2006 00:56:23 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-423?page=comments#action_12433008 ] 
Wendy Chien commented on HADOOP-423:

To fix this, we'll detect and normalize relative paths in the Path class.  For backwards compatibility,
we'll allow people to rename or remove existing files/dirs that contain '.' or '..' .  Or
do people think that's not necessary because it's unlikely anyone has been using '.' and '..'
in their paths intentionally?  (Though I suppose if they did unintentionally, it might be
nice to let them remove them.)

> Paths containing  '.' or '..' are not normalized -- the corresponding directories actually
seem to be created. This is inconsistent and unexpected behavior, and  is particularly painful
when running from a working directory, using relative paths that start with ...
