Opening files, ending with dot (.)

Post by evil » Fri May 25, 2018 10:02 pm

Me again...

I am having problems, opening files, which end with a dot (.)

Creating a simple text file for example and saving it to "ram:test." cannot be opened with Openfile()

Other functios have the same problem.

Copyfile() zip.addfile() also do not work with such files.

Is this a bug? AmigaDOS has no problems copying those files.

Best regards

Right, I can confirm this. Will be fixed but note that on Windows files cannot end in a dot so it might not be the best idea to use those files if you care about portability.
