Re: [MiNT] bug in unlink/MiNTLib?

Hello !

Guido Flohr a écrit:

It may be the difference between "/foo/bar" and "/foo/bar/" (or perhaps
even "/foo/bar/."). I don't have any linux box around to test, and the
UnixWare 2.1.2 manpage for unlink don't talk about EISDIR (only about
EPERM), so I assume it always returns EPERM in this case.

Hope this helps...
