Date: 2012jul19 Language: Java Q. What's the difference between separator and pathSeparator in the File class? A. The names are a bit confusing. separator is the slash in something like this "/usr/local/bin". pathSeparator is the colon in the $PATH environment variable - eg "/bin:/usr/local/bin" On Windows separator is a backslash and pathSeparator is a semicolon. A handy use for these:String myfullpath = mydir + File.separator + mybasename;
