30.10.10.1 Enum path​::​format [fs.enum.path.format]

This enum specifies constants used to identify the format of the character sequence, with the meanings listed in Table 122.
Table 122 — Enum path​::​format
Name
Meaning
native_­format
The native pathname format.
generic_­format
The generic pathname format.
auto_­format
The interpretation of the format of the character sequence is implementation-defined.
The implementation may inspect the content of the character sequence to determine the format.
[Note
:
For POSIX-based systems, native and generic formats are equivalent and the character sequence should always be interpreted in the same way.
