Hi all,

Dirname and basename assume Unix style slash-delimited
pathnmes and do not work on Win style
backslash-delimited pathnames. I wrote very simple
versions of each that I am enclosing which support both
Unix and Win style delimiters and otherwise mostly mimic
behavior of the standard (msys)versions.

I am not sure this is a bug, but inconvenience at least. I
never use the standard msys versions any more.

Thank you,

Simon

    Can you please give me examples of your use that do not work
    correctly?

    --[why this is needed at all]--
    $ echo $WINDIR
    C:\WINDOWS

    $ basename $WINDIR
    C:\WINDOWS

    $ basenamex $WINDIR
    WINDOWS

    --[where behavior differs]--
    $ dirname /
    /

    $ basename /
    /

    $ dirnamex /
    C:/msys

    $ basenamex /
    1.0
    --[end]--

    I don't see the need for this. Item closed.
