Directoryexists does not recognise directory if path contains a separator at the end on Windows.
Bug?


That is why I need to that.
String dir = GetFileDirectory ( filename );

if ( dir.EndsWith ( DIR_SEPS ) )
dir = dir.Left ( dir.GetCount() - 1 );




if ( DirectoryExists ( dir ) )
{

In this case, our behavior is simply the same as the behavior of API we are calling...

My take is that with separator at the end, it is not correct directory path anymore. Win32 API agrees.

Does your library agree with itself?


One function returns a "directory" which is not a directory according to another function in your library.

Good point Smile

Anyway, GetFileDirectory is sort of wrong name, kept (for ages) for backward compatibility. You can use GetFileFolder instead.
