Bug #14406

Updated by nobu (Nobuyoshi Nakada) over 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" 
 ~~~
