You can perhaps create your path without the name check. (use name_checker
no_name_check in the constructor or something like this).

Objet : [Boost-users] Is boost::filesystem::path unable to deal with
hiddenunix dircetories?

Dear boost users and developers,

I just encountered a minor problem in boost::filesystem::path which seems to

be unable to deal with hidden unix directories ( == names preceeded by an
'.' character ). Is there any way to generate a valid path object for paths
like "/foo/.bar"? Trying to create such an object from a C++ string results
in an exception getting thrown.
