Dear Cafe,

is there a library that provides an
"abstract representation of file and directory pathnames"?

This had been discussed before - e.g.,
(it's one message of a longer thread)

That message references an obsolete (?) Java library, they now have

It seems that
does cover typical usage.

It is based on FilePath = String, and its implementation has some
"++"-ing. That indicates that an abstraction layer is missing - or, that
such a layer is indeed not required?

- J.W.
