Windows maximum path length

Postby egs » 11 Jul 2013, 00:01

What is the recommended approach to dealing with paths on Windows that exceed ~260 characters?
Is it the responsibility of the Poco library user to prepend "\\?\" to long paths so that subsequent use of the path (e.g. to create a Poco::FileOutputStream) will work or is there a nifty Poco mechanism that will take care of that for me?

I'm referring to the Windows maximum path limitations documented here ( ... px#maxpath)
