           Summary: sys::Path interface is ugly
           Product: libraries
           Version: trunk
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: System Library
        AssignedTo: rspencer at x10sys.com
        ReportedBy: rspencer at x10sys.com

Currently the interface for manipulating operating system Paths is pretty ugly.
It tries to maintain a distinction between a path that should reference a
directory and one that should reference a file. The distinction isn't really
worth maintaining. The method names are awkward and have proven to be confusing
for its users.

It is suggested that sys::Path interface be changed to be similar to
java.io.File  which can be found here:   


Anyone who has any thoughts on this, please speak up.
