Method Detail

normalizeWindows

public static 
String normalizeWindows(
String path)
Normalize a path name that is supposed to be Windows style. Replaces / characters by \ and remove duplicate \ characters.

Parameters:
path - a path to normalize
Returns:
a normalized path.

normalizeUnix

public static 
String normalizeUnix(
String path)
Deprecated. this should not be used since \ is a valid part of UNIX file names. Also, a better normalizer would also consider swquences like a/../b and a/./b -- Try to work without this method.

Normalize a path name that is supposed to be UNIX style. Replaces \ characters by / and remove duplicate / characters.

Parameters:
path - a path to normalize
Returns:
a normalized path.

normalizeVirtualWindows

public static 
String normalizeVirtualWindows(
String path)

normalizeVirtualUnix

public static 
String normalizeVirtualUnix(
String path)

normalizeUnknown

public static 
String normalizeUnknown(
String path)

getSeparator

public static 
String getSeparator(
String path)
Given a path name, try to guess what separator is used. Should only be used for absolute path names, but tries to compute a good fallback in case of relative path names as well.

Parameters:
path - a path to check
Returns:
a separator String for the given path: either "/" or "\\"

enQuoteUnix

public static 
String enQuoteUnix(
String s)
Quotes a string such that it can be used in a remote UNIX shell. This has been tested with sh, bash and tcsh shells. On Windows, special characters likes quotes and dollar sign. and - most importantly - the backslash will not be quoted correctly. Newline is only quoted correctly in tcsh. But since this is mainly intended for file names, it should work OK in almost every case.

Parameters:
s - String to be quoted
Returns:
quoted string, or original if no quoting was necessary.
