Should c$ and d$ still be in HPCC code...?


    • Type: Bug

      Working with an upgrade from HPCC 5.x to 6.x, I'm getting an error that mentions a "/d$" Linux path.

      Nowhere in environment.xml is "/d$" mentioned.   "Directories" group only designates /var/lib/....

      In searching for references to /d$ and /c$ in HPCC source code, I discovered github does not support searching with special characters like "$".

      However, google.com does support it.  And currently finds "/d$" in apparently "current" code, below.

      Q:  Should this code still be here?  Should any logic be referring to folders with /d$ - Naturally, in some installations (all new ones?), there will be no /c$ or /d$ defined.
