RE: Function to return the current directory

Soooo.....does it work?
Anyone have any feedback on whether (and how) it can be made better, more efficient/portable?
The dirname variable on my local copy has been changed to 'd' to avoid confusion with the function name, but apart from that I'm not sure how to improve it. Also still not sure if it works on Windows or Mac.

The gsub grabs everything up to and including the last slash or backslash in the filename. I assume that's pretty much the same thing that the dirname command does, since both appear to simply work on a given string rather than check whether or not it's actually an existing file or directory. The fl_filename_ext() function seems to work the same way.
