Feature Proposal: Foswiki guesses the paths and complains about backslashes on Win32


I think it would be better to change the paths to forward slashes if they are guessed instead of guessing them with backslashes and right away complain that they should be using forward slashes.

Description and Documentation

I understand the warning for paths I enter, but do not see why to complain about the paths the configure guessed itself.

$Foswiki::cfg{$cfg} =~ s{\\}{/}g if $^O eq 'MSWin32';

within the Foswiki::Configure::Checker::guessMajorDir is most probably all that's needed.

(basically, i see this as a bug which we can fix without needing to discuss it as a feature)

I guess I'm the only person working on windows atm, and that only rarely, so i'll see if can find time to do this for the next release.

Yes. This is a bug. It does not need a feature request.

Just open an item on this.

I change this to under construction in the lack of a better way to handle this.

Changed this to MergedToCore. This was fixed in July 2010 under Tasks.Item9240
