Hi all,

are there any plans to add functions to Boost.Filesystem to get different
default directories such as get_user_home_dir(), get_app_config_dir(),

On Windows these probably would map directly to the SHGetFolderLocation()
function, on *nix based systems these could map to some equivalent
environment variable (i.e. $HOME) or some convention (i.e. system config
files are in /etc/...). Surely there are some conventions for other systems
as well.

Regards Hartmut
