Description Sebastien Bacher 2005-07-17 15:51:06 UTC
The API says:

"Extract the name of the directory in which the file pointed to by uri is stored
as a newly allocated string. The string will end with a GNOME_VFS_URI_PATH_CHR."

but "g_print ("%s\n", gnome_vfs_uri_extract_dirname (gnome_vfs_uri_new
prints "/usr/share" and not "/usr/share"

What should be changed, the description or the function?

prints "/usr/share" and not "/usr/share/"
Comment 3 André Klapper 2008-09-06 19:10:35 UTC
gnome-vfs has been deprecated and superseded by gio/gvfs since GNOME 2.22, hence mass-closing many of the gnome-vfs requests/bug reports. This means that gnome-vfs is NOT actively maintained anymore, however patches are still welcome.

If your reported issue is still valid for gio/gvfs, please feel free to file a bug report against glib/gio or gvfs.

@Bugzilla mail recipients: query for gnome-vfs-mass-close to get rid of these notification emails all together.
