in reply to Re^3: glob() and dot files
in thread glob() and dot files

a directory with a "dot suffix". That surprised me.Having said that, I have never seen such a thing in "real life". By convention, that is just not "the way that this is done".

The two places I see it happen the most are when some programs put their version number as part of the directory name (C:\Program Files\FooBar v1.23) or when *NIX tools are ported to Windows.
