Additional paths named backslash created



  • PACOMP included files beginning with a period, in an archive, however any path that was empty had an additional path created in the archive, that was not on the local system.

    These additional paths all had a backslash character as the path name.

    PowerArchiver Command Line 4.01

    try with PACL 5.0 Beta 1 please…

    thanks



  • @peterr:

    PACOMP …[snip]… added the paths beginning with a backslash.

    The archives are TAR.GZ

    Tried with PACL 5.00 beta 1.
    Folder test has one file, three sub folders (two empty)

    a) pacomp -a -r files.tar.gz C:\test*.*

    • did not store any path information even for the files in the sub-folder (hence nothing for the empty folders) 😕

    b)a) pacomp -a -r -P files2.tar.gz C:\test*.*

    • stored full paths (including empty folders), but did not see the extra backslash reported (using both PowerArchiver and paext to list contents of archive).

    It didn’t even add any files beginning with a period at all, just a heap of empty paths.

    -p is for relative path, -P is for full path…

    yeah, it doesnt like it since you cant create those in Windows… we will see what can we do.

    That is not correct.

    I can create a file, in Windows, beginning with a period, using …

    Crimson Editor
    Notepad
    Wordpad
    OpenOffice writer
    edit (command line editor).

    I could also think of a number of other programs on Windows, that can “save as”, and make the filename begin with a period.

    sure, but not in windows explorer….

    In any case, i already said we will take an look at it.

    Who creates files in Explorer ? It can only create an ‘empty’ file anyway.

    If a file beginning with a period needs to be created, then obviously it would be created with an editor, and there are many that can create a file (with content), in Windows, that begin with a period. 😉

    do you want this done or not? It doesnt seem so…

    Want to hear some nice words for working over the weekend…

    🙂

    I know you know I know that :p
    Relative path should still save the Sub-folder names.

    Note: Just noticed I missed it out, but I did have -p in first test.
