Periods in directory and file names

ObjectStore (NS4) supports path components that start with a period (“.”).

For example, the following are supported:
  • dir1/dir2/.test/one
  • dir1/dir2/./one
  • dir1/dir2/../one

The periods in each are simply considered strings. As long as the client views a filename of “.” or “..” literally, a dir action will recognize any iteration of “.” as part of a directory name.
