Bug #35998 getPathname() method always returns unix style filenames.
Submitted: 2006-01-13 17:07 UTC Modified: 2006-01-16 09:44 UTC
From: rquadling at gmail dot com Assigned: helly
Status: Closed Package: SPL related
PHP Version: 5.1.2 OS: Win*
Private report: No CVE-ID:

Description:
------------
The pathnames returned by DirectoryIterator::getPathname() are always with '/'. Which is no good for windows.

In /* $Id: spl_directory.c,v 1.63 2006/01/01 13:09:54 sniper Exp $ */ Line 165 the culprit is the "%s/%s".

Ideally the filename should come back appropriate to the DEFAULT_SLASH constant defined in tsrm_virtual_cwd.h

This constant is controlled by compiler directive TSRM_WIN32.

This is used in realpath which the PHP code below demonstrates.



Reproduce code:
---------------
<?php
foreach(new DirectoryIterator('C:\\') as $o_FILE)
	{
	echo $o_FILE->getPathname() . "\t" . realpath($o_FILE->getPathname()) . "\n";
	}
?>

Thank you for the report, and for helping us make PHP better.

Not that it buys you anything besides what you are typically used to see.

Exactly. I use a LOT of PHP scripts to activate other Windows applications which can only understand the \ and not the / and when giving the filename to a user in a report ("The file you are looking for is called ..."), the users will only follow what you tell them!

Thanks for fixing it though. Saves me 1 function call per filename. Which will be a lot over time.
