digitalmars.D.bugs - [Bug 189] New: std.path enhancements

           Summary: std.path enhancements
           Product: D
           Version: 0.160
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: Phobos
        AssignedTo: bugzilla digitalmars.com
        ReportedBy: StefanLiebig web.de


new method:
   char[] parent( char[] path, int up = 1 )
   returns the parent path name of the given path, up indicates the levels for
"walking up"

extended method:
   char[] join( char[] p1, char[] p2 )
   would really be cool if it could join "real" relative paths (p2) such as
"../sibling".

If helpfull I could provide a win specific implementation e.g. to be used as
starting point.

The bug list is not a very good discussion forum about the merits or demerits
of proposed enhancements.

If Brad (or anyone else) wants to set up a separate bugzilla system for
enhancement requests, that would be fine and likely useful. But this one should
be for bugs only.

Bugs are arbitrarily defined as:
1) doesn't work as documented
2) contradictory, missing, or obviously wrong documentation

This is one thing I disagree with. The priority 'enhancement' makes it very easy to filter search results to hide those. If even more separation is desired I could setup another component or even another product to house them. Many many projects use bugzilla rather successfully for tracking enhancement requests and the resulting discussions. What's your reason for objecting to enhancements being in this bugzilla instance? Is it ease of data inspection? If so, I suspect your issues would be easy to work out with a little help understanding how to use it's search features. If it's something else, let's discuss how to make it work out best for everyone. Thoughts? Later, Brad

I thought getDirName() was "parent()" (except named like I expect it to 
be, and available in other runtime libraries.)  You'd just call it 
multiple times for higher "up" values - no?

Sorry!
I thought that "severity: enhancement" is just for that.
So, I will post it to the forum.
