#11051: filesystem::temp_directory_path() fails on OSX
 Reporter: Gerik Rhoden <Gerik.Rhoden@…> | Owner: bemandawes

Milestone: To Be Determined | Component: filesystem
  Version: Boost 1.57.0 | Severity: Problem
 Keywords: |
 On OSX the call to filesystem::temp_directory_path() throws an exception
 with error ENOTDIR.

 This happens because on OSX the environment variable TMPDIR has a trailing
 /. There are quite a few references to this on the web.

 On my system OSX 10.10.2 the TMPDIR is set to:

 Workaround: Use
   system::error_code ec;
   filesystem::path p = filesystem::temp_directory_path(ec);
 and ignore the error code. (which is ENOTDIR)

 Suggested fix: Remove trailing / after getting environment variable in
 "boost_1_57_0\libs\filesystem\src\operations.cpp" at around line 1770.
