Bob Alexander added the comment: Oops, clarification... I just reread my kind of long previous post, and realized it wasn't very explicit that anything concerning file extensions or prepending the current directory to the PATH apply to Windows only; not Unix (of course). The "returning

Bob Alexander added the comment: Since there seems to be ongoing work on the "which" function, here are a few more thoughts on this function's future: - The existing version does not prepend the current directory to the path if it is already in the path. If the current directory is in

Toby Tobkin added the comment: Steve, yeah I saw that and started playing with Clinic last night. I'll have the updated patch out soon--I've just been slow because I've been flying around to interviews trying to get my first job out of college and it's been eating all my free time.

Steve Dower added the comment: I'm good with the patch, except we can't use ctypes in the standard library. NeedCurrentDirectoryForExePathW will need to be wrapped in Modules/_winapi.c. Should be fairly simple to do, though it probably requires learning argument clinic (which admittedly I

R. David Murray added the comment: Well, that's a newish situation for Windows, something I certainly wasn't aware of. Which is trying to find the executable that would be found if typed at the prompt. So, what is the correct algorithm for emulating how Windows does that search? (Or some

2015-10-05 Thread Steve Dower
Steve Dower added the comment: The Win32 API function linked by eryksun is the correct way to determine whether to include the current directory in the search - the doc specifically refers to matching cmd.exe's behaviour (searching ".;%PATH%" vs. just "%PATH%"). The PATHEXT behaviour should

eryksun added the comment: My suggestion is only for 3.5 / 3.6, because Windows XP is no longer supported. Starting with Windows Vista, both cmd.exe and CreateProcess support this behavior. I realize that disabling searching the current director by default is going beyond what cmd.exe does,
