#3185: absolute path error
  Reporter: tmmikolajczyk_at_[hidden] | Owner: bemandawes
      Type: Bugs | Status: closed
 Milestone: Boost 1.40.0 | Component: filesystem
   Version: Boost 1.37.0 | Severity: Problem
Resolution: invalid | Keywords: filesystem absolute path
Changes (by bemandawes):

  * status: new => closed
  * resolution: => invalid


 This isn't a bug - it is done deliberately to conform to POSIX. Here is
 the POSIX definition of Absolute Pathname:

      3.2 Absolute Pathname

      A pathname beginning with a single or more than two slashes; see also

 IIRC, Windows also treats two slashes differently, although it has been a
 while since I looked at how Windows handles multiple slashes.
