I'm trying to use copy_file to, well, copy a file to a backup file
(signified by adding ".bak" to the file's name). Here's what I'm doing,
chopped way down:
int processFile(const fs::path& fileName)
fs::path copyFileName(fileName.native_file_string() + ".bak");
This throws an exception:
boost::filesystem::path: invalid name "D:\Temp\CDFix\INDEX.HTM.bak" in path: "D:\Temp\CDFix
I don't see what's invalid about this name. From what I can tell, I'm
fulfilling copy_file's preconditions and not falling into one of the cases
where it's supposed to throw.
What am I doing wrong?
