System.Path.Directory.getAppUserDataDirectory error on Windows 7

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: benmos
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: component1 Version:
Keywords: Cc:


Under Windows 7, in ghci, this code:

ta <- getAppUserDataDirectory "testapp"

returns a value of "/C:\Users\timothy\AppData?\Roaming\testapp"

Naturally, the beginning forward slash causes problems.

Versions: pathtype-0.0.2, directory-, filepath-, base- among others. This was all installed on a clean virtual machine with Haskell Platform 2010.1.0.0 that includes ghc version 6.12.1.

  • owner changed from somebody to benmos

I've only just added initial support for Windows separators... there's a bit more that needs doing though - eg drive letter handling.
