Validating the destination file paths
The default command locations specified in the property files can vary between hosts and operating systems.
Since Windows prohibits path components from containing `:` # characters, failing to strip this `:`-suffixed prefix would # erroneously invalidate all valid absolute Windows pathnames. The question of "How do I test pathname validity and, for valid pathnames, the existence or writability of those paths? Both are interesting, and neither have received a genuinely satisfactory answer here... Before hurling our fragile meat suits into the python-riddled moshpits of pain, we should probably define what we mean by "pathname validity." What defines validity, exactly?By "root filesystem," we mean: exceptions when passed pathnames residing in non-existing directories, regardless of whether those pathnames are invalid or not."He doesn't like check in with me and give me a play by play, but it's his life, and you just want the guy to be happy.Ch-ch-check out some of the mom/glam shaming (below)!
