Ticket #5434 (closed Bugs: fixed)

path.make_preferred() does not work as specified on Windows

Reported by: steffen.priesterjahn@… Owned by: bemandawes
Milestone: To Be Determined Component: filesystem
Version: Boost 1.46.1 Severity: Problem
Keywords: filesystem windows make_preferred Cc:


On the Windows platform and since boost 1.46.1, path.make_preferred() simply executes

std::replace(m_pathname.begin(), m_pathname.end(), L'\\', L'/');

which replaces backslashes with forward slashes. However, the function should do the opposite thing.
