Feature #5994

Updated by nobu (Nobuyoshi Nakada) over 6 years ago

This is Windows specific, I guess, as filename case doesn't matter there. 
 Ruby version is not specific to 1.9.3p0 (ruby 1.8.7p334 gives the same). 
 The script below produces results that seem inconsistent. 
 Using special characters (wildcards) in the glob pattern returns the 
 actual filename on disk but a plain pattern (no wildcards) returns the 
 pattern itself.    This means I have to use another method for producing 
 a file with the same name or else override the users case-style 
 preference (which is not my intention).

 Dir.chdir ENV['TEMP'] 
 TMPDIR = Time.now.strftime('%Y%m%d_%H%M%S_delete') 
 Dir.mkdir(TMPDIR) 
 Dir.chdir(TMPDIR) 

 TMPFN    = 'Foo' 
 File.open(TMPFN, 'w') {} 

 #---------------------------------------------- 
 p Dir.glob('*')     #=> ["Foo"]    ok 
 p Dir.glob('f?O') #=> ["Foo"]    ok 

 # But a glob without special characters returns 
 #    the glob pattern instead of the filename 
 p Dir.glob('foO') #=> ["foO"]    not wanted 
 p Dir['foO']        #=> ["foO"]    same as above 
 p Dir.glob('foO', File::FNM_CASEFOLD) 
                 # casefold ignored, as docs say 
 #---------------------------------------------- 

 File.delete(TMPFN) 
 Dir.delete(File.join('..', TMPDIR)) 


 #+++++ 
 # Same incorrect results from: 
 #     ruby 1.8.7p334 (2011-02-18) [i386-mingw32]
