Subject Re: [jira] Created: (HARMONY-5987) [classlib][luni] - different behavior with RI when file path contains "\\" in Linux
Date Wed, 24 Sep 2008 06:47:24 GMT

It seems intended to be, but I'm not sure. I think it's a great feature 
when porting the windows depended code("\\" in path name) to linux, but 
there is potential problem, how to reference a file which name contians 
"\\" on linux? And this different may cause surprise when some 
applications depends on the behavior of RI.

Any comments/suggestions?

Best Regards,

seems RI doesn't covert windows file separator char "\\" to system separator char on Linux,

in java.io.File, which convert "\\" or "/" to system separator char, so  it may be intended
