Why auto-convert real paths removed

Post by yusef88 » 07 Feb 2019 16:58

this was very cool. Is there a reason for that?
v19.60.0010 - 2019-02-07 15:15
* Command Line: In v11.40.0003 - 2012-06-28 10:29 this was added:
Now real paths that correspond to special paths are auto-converted to
special paths. E.g. this command line
XYplorer "C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\Donald\Desktop\Blah\"
will open XYplorer pointing to "Desktop\Blah" if this is a valid
special path.
I now think this is too smart. Removed it.

Somebody asked for it, and I think he was right. Why being over-smart? If you want the virtual path you can pass it. You get what you give.
