G'day ghosh123,

The Entry widget is accepting a forward slash (/)!

I added an additional print statement to sub buildPath {...}:

sub buildPath { my $path = shift; print "buildPath : BEFORE canonpath: $path :\n" ; $path = File::Spec->canonpath($path); print "buildPath : After canonpath: $path :\n" ; ...

The output before and after canonpath() is:

... buildPath : BEFORE canonpath: /home/ghoshabh/ : buildPath : After canonpath: /home/ghoshabh : ...

Here's a workaround which I've successfully tested:

sub buildPath { my $path = shift; my $trailing = $path =~ /\/$/ ? '/' : ''; ... return $path . $trailing; }

-- Ken
