#2564 closed defect (fixed)

Mixed case pathnames broken

Reported by: lordhoto Owned by: fingolfin
Priority: normal Component: Common
Keywords: Cc:



since some time now (I think since one of those latest
common/file.cpp changes from Fingolfin) mixed case
paths like: /home/loom/files/ScummVM/MI2 are broken.
Now the file class isn't able to open those any longer,
if I change all to lowercase it works perfectly, but I
think at least here mixed case should be allowed (like
it was before).

Could you be a bit more specific? I am using mixed case paths extensively (i.e.
*all* of my games are in locations with mixed case paths), w/o any problems.

comment:2 by fingolfin, 14 years ago

P.S.: Note that I am on a system which ignores case in filenames. Hence I need to
know more details on precise usage examples where things work / don't work if
you expect me to look into this. Otherwise, somebody else with access to a
system which is case sensitive needs to look into this. The code in common/
file.cpp is pretty straight forward, IMO.

Well I'm on Linux, it fails because all paths are converted
to lowercase in File::open (I think, didn't look that
carefully yet), It seems that it got broken with revision
21858. Example:
I specify extrapath as: "/home/loom/files/ScummVM/extra", I
also have exactly that pathname, but it doesn't find any
files in it, because it tries all characters in lowercase it
Worked perfectly before that revision.
I hope it's clear now...

Urgh. There was a bug in String::toLowercase which probably was the cause of
the problem. I.e. the code in file.cpp seems to be right...
please try again.
