Hello community

I have been researching routes in ColdFusion and I want to know if there is any function that returns the root node of the directory.

Example: C:\mydirectory\myotherdirectory  

output:   C:\         

 

Example: D:\mydirectory\myotherdirectory  

output:   D:\

#listfirst(expandpath('./'),'/')#

 

this should return the 'c:' part of the current directory

 

please note this might not work if you are in a shared environment.

 

and not too sure this will work on Linux
