here is a patch to move the extraction of the basename to lfs. I use it in
several modules and snippets.

+ fpattern = WIN32 and "^(.*[\\:])([^\\]+)$" or "^(.*/)([^/]+)$"
+ path, fname = (filename or ""):match(fpattern)
+ return fname or fspec

returning path instead of fname implements the dirname functionality of
bash and other shells. I don't have it, because I have not found a use case
for it.

Best, /PA
