sphinx-quickstart misinterprets '~' in path

Anonymous avatarAnonymous created an issue

I pip'd Sphinx to my Linux Mint, Python 2.7 sytem and followed the tutorial suggestion to use sphinx-quickstart. I entered '~/tmp/docsrc' as the path and found that the tool created the folder '~' in my home directory instead of creating docsrc under the existing ~/tmp dir.

If this is the intended behavior, users should be warned somewhere to use full paths, without any shell aliases. Otherwise the software should be fixed.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
