Re: RFA: Fix problem with trailing slashes in include paths on mingw

Did you check these?
Sorry, I missed that when I typed in the tests.
/ and \ are OK, but // and \\ don't work. Otherwise the
is the same as with leading-drive-and-backslash. Likewise with leading
drive letter but no leading slash. FWIW, I'm running these tests on MS
Ok, how about that:
/* While the native stat() on NT4 accepts trailing slashes, the
one on MS Windows 2000 / XP does not accept any trailing slashes
or backslashes, neither single nor double, except where they appear
as a drive root directory designator. So remove any trailing slashes
except for the first one after a colon. */
Better, but still not ideal, especially with your observation below
that this is cygwin-specific. (Just the trailing slashes, or slashes
and backslashes both?) On the theory that the whole problem is Cygwin
specific, I would say something like
NT4 accepts trailing slashes, but no trailing backslashes.
