I wanted to blog this mainly for my own edification, but I came across something I thought was very strange in the Windows command cacles.

So what's the difference between these two lines:

cacls "c:\temp" /T /G everyone:F


cacls "c:\temp\" /T /G everyone:F

If you were you were to point out that one doesn't have a trailing slash on the path, and one does; you would be correct.  You would also be correct if you pointed out that one works, and one doesn't.

Here is the output from the two commands:

C:\>cacls "c:\temp" /T /G everyone:F
Are you sure (Y/N)?


C:\>cacls "c:\temp\" /T /G everyone:F
The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

Seems like such a silly limitation, maybe there is something I'm not aware of?

I've decided to try getting on the "micro-blogging" band wagon and try twittering.  My twitter is @akcoder  Hopefully I'll have something interesting to say...
