Subject Determining the host OS
Date Tue, 20 Jan 2009 00:09:20 GMT
HI folks,

I'm trying to write a Cocoon-2.1-based application which I want to be 
completely portable between Tomcats running on Linux, OSX and Windows. 
I'm having a problem with the use of slashes and backslashes, especially 
on Windows, where I've found that some relative paths are expressed with 
backslashes and some with forward slashes, and the {realpath:/} constant 
returns a value without a trailing slash (whereas on *nix there seems to 
always be a trailing slash.

I could solve these problems using Flowscript and XSLT if I could 
determine what host OS Cocoon is running on. However, I can't find a way 
to do that in the sitemap. There's the HostSelector, which tells me the 
domain of the host; and there's the BrowserSelector, which tells me the 
connecting client's browser; but there's no way I can find to discover 
what operating system Cocoon is running on.

Does anyone know a way to do this, preferably directly in the sitemap?

All help appreciated,
