Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8868) FileUtil#chmod should normalize the path before calling into shell APIs
Date Wed, 10 Oct 2012 02:44:08 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8868?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13472952#comment-13472952
] 

Bikas Saha commented on HADOOP-8868:
------------------------------------

So we are using JAVA API to resolve the path to a normalized form? Ideally the FileUtil method
could take File arguments instead of strings but we'd like to avoid changing the public API.
In what cases can we get a mix of slashes on the string path?

> We have seen cases where paths passed in from FileUtil#chmod to Shell APIs can contain
both forward and backward slashes on Windows.
> This causes problems, since some Windows APIs do not work well with mixed slashes.
