Table 128: Enum path​::​format[tab:fs.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.
Recommended practice: For POSIX-based systems, native and generic formats are equivalent and the character sequence should always be interpreted in the same way.
