      Description

      Hi,

      I use QStandardPaths to retrieve specific folder locations on Mac/Win.
      For testing I wrote this final code below.

      The result on windows is this:
      QDir::separator = "
      "
      QStandardPaths::DesktopLocation = "C:/Users/ademmler/Desktop"

      But I would expect this:
      QStandardPaths::DesktopLocation = "C:\\Users\\ademmler
      Desktop"

      The results on Mac/OS X are fine:
      QDir::separator = "/"
      QStandardPaths::DesktopLocation = "/Users/ademmler/Desktop"

      The minimal code for testing:

      #include <QCoreApplication>
      #include <QStandardPaths>
      #include <QDir>
      #include <QDebug>

      int main(int argc, char *argv[])

      { QCoreApplication a(argc, argv); qDebug() << "QDir::separator = " << QString(QDir::separator()) << Qt::endl; qDebug() << "QStandardPaths::DesktopLocation = " << QStandardPaths::writableLocation(QStandardPaths::DesktopLocation) << Qt::endl; return a.exec(); }
