Summary

Get (TemporaryPath) returning different data in FM14 than in 13

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

14

Operating system version

OS X 10.10

Description of the issue

Get (TemporaryPath) returning different data in FM14 than in 13.
ex.
FM13 = /Macintosh HD/private/var/folders/sw/fm96pj4x5mq_s6cgxpg6vspc0000gn/T/S10.9/
FM14 = /Macintosh HD/var/folders/sw/fm96pj4x5mq_s6cgxpg6vspc0000gn/T/S10.9/

Notice that "private" is omitted in FM14.
Not sure if this is a bug, but something to be aware of. In my case it turned out to be the culprit in breaking a script that parsed the returned value of the function using position of "private".

Steps to reproduce the problem

In data viewer get result of Get (TemporaryPath) for both v13 and v14 and compare.

Expected result

return would be identical

Actual result

not

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

none

Workaround

In this case I used the function Get (SystemDrive) to omit the drive from the path.
