Hi, in .Net '\' is returned by
System.IO.Path.DirectorySeparatorChar

Open in new window

Is there a similar constant for '.', the current directory?
The only details I can find are here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.io.path.pathseparator(v=vs.110).aspx
Thank you
John

I thought the 'dot' was a standard character for that.

Anyway you could laways specifically get the current directory to be certain:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.io.directory.getcurrentdirectory%28v=vs.110%29.aspx

// Get the current directory.
            string path = Directory.GetCurrentDirectory();

Dot is not reserved character so there is no special constant created for it ..
