I often see people using string concatenation to
create directory names. Like this:
string path = "C:\\data\\" + filename; < /EM
But there's a much better API:
string path = System.IO.Path.Combine("C:\\data", filename);<
Not only does this
take care of the whole, "Do I need a trailing slash?" issue, but if you
specify an absolute path for the second parameter, it will just return the
second parameter. That means that someone can enter "foo" or "C:\\temp\\foo"
for filename, and it'll do what you'd expect.
This is a great little tid-bit... you gotta love
this framework.. i have been working with it since beta one and I
still learn something new everyday.
