Copy Unix path + file as text. EG:

(OT, but "Upload attachment". It never dawned on me that the board even allowed that.)

So what is this a RFE?

And I wondered why you used tinypic.

Guessing from the forum chosen for this post, yes. :D

@cbp, I'm not entirely sure what are the rules for creating such a "UNIX" path. Is it just UNC with backslashes replaced by forward slashes and without the doubled slash at the beginning? Could you tell us where you use such paths? (I don't recall any programs that would use such paths - maybe it's just a lack of knowledge on my side.)

I'm so used to NOT being able to post pics directly through a board, never occurred to me on this board.

Heh. Missed that too.
I virtually always use the 'View active topics', so I totally disregard what particular forum a post is in (unless I'm actually going to start a thread).

I often need to send paths to colleagues who work on osx or linux.

Please specify the way for creating UNIX paths in more detail.

+1 for me!

I would love to be able to paste paths into a python prompt for instance. or into the cygwin console (bash).

To build a useful unix path, Salamander needed to know where the file system is mounted. How could it possibly know this?

for python, one just need to replace the slashes, from backward slashes to forward slashes

Well, that's not very UNIX-like. Actually, I know only one program that needs addresses like that and it's not Python(*)(**).

*) It's Apache HTTPD (and that's only because it's mentioned in the comments and I've never tried writing it with backslashes).
**) Python can process backslashes without problems, you just need to escape them correctly or use raw strings.
