Bug #14406

Updated by nobu (Nobuyoshi Nakada) almost 2 years ago

TMP environment variable on Windows is set to a name that contains a tilde. `File.expand_path` File.expand_path doesn't currently return an expanded name. I would expect it to do so as its documentation says:
"Converts a pathname to an absolute pathname."
"The given pathname may start with a “~”, “~'', which expands to the process owner's home directory"

Example on my system:


~~~ ruby
irb(main):085:0> File.expand_path(Dir.tmpdir)
=> "C:/Users/ANDREI~1/AppData/Local/Temp"
irb(main):086:0> File.absolute_path(Dir.tmpdir)
=> "C:/Users/ANDREI~1/AppData/Local/Temp"
~~~
