NAME

File::Spec::Win32 - methods for Win32 file specs 

SYNOPSIS

 require File::Spec::Win32; # Done internally by File::Spec if needed
 

DESCRIPTION

See File::Spec::Unix for a documentation of the methods providedthere. This package overrides the implementation of these methods, notthe semantics.
devnull
Returns a string representation of the null device.
tmpdir
Returns a string representation of the first existing directoryfrom the following list:

    $ENV{TMPDIR}    $ENV{TEMP}    $ENV{TMP}    SYS:/temp    C:\system\temp    C:/temp    /tmp    /

The SYS:/temp is preferred in Novell NetWare and the C:\system\tempfor Symbian (the File::Spec::Win32 is used also for those platforms).

Since Perl 5.8.0, if running under taint mode, and if the environmentvariables are tainted, they are not used.

case_tolerant
MSWin32 case-tolerance depends on GetVolumeInformation() $ouFsFlags == FS_CASE_SENSITIVE,indicating the case significance when comparing file specifications.Since XP FS_CASE_SENSITIVE is effectively disabled for the NT subsubsystem.See http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2007-07/msg00891.htmlDefault: 1
file_name_is_absolute
As of right now, this returns 2 if the path is absolute with avolume, 1 if it's absolute with no volume, 0 otherwise.
catfile
Concatenate one or more directory names and a filename to form acomplete path ending with a filename
canonpath
No physical check on the filesystem, but a logical cleanup of apath. On UNIX eliminated successive slashes and successive ``/.''.On Win32 makes

        dir1\dir2\dir3\..\..\dir4 -> \dir\dir4 and even        dir1\dir2\dir3\...\dir4   -> \dir\dir4
splitpath
    ($volume,$directories,$file) = File::Spec->splitpath( $path );    ($volume,$directories,$file) = File::Spec->splitpath( $path, $no_file );

Splits a path into volume, directory, and filename portions. Assumes that the last file is a path unless the path ends in '\\', '\\.', '\\..'or $no_file is true. On Win32 this means that $no_file true makes this return ( $volume, $path, '' ).

Separators accepted are \ and /.

Volumes can be drive letters or UNC sharenames (\\server\share).

The results can be passed to ``catpath'' to get back a path equivalent to(usually identical to) the original path.

splitdir
The opposite of catdir().

    @dirs = File::Spec->splitdir( $directories );

$directories must be only the directory portion of the path on systems that have the concept of a volume or that have path syntax that differentiatesfiles from directories.

Unlike just splitting the directories on the separator, leading empty and trailing directory entries can be returned, because these are significanton some OSs. So,

    File::Spec->splitdir( "/a/b/c" );

Yields:

    ( '', 'a', 'b', '', 'c', '' )
catpath
Takes volume, directory and file portions and returns an entire path. UnderUnix, $volume is ignored, and this is just like catfile(). On other OSs,the $volume become significant.
 

Note For File::Spec::Win32 Maintainers

Novell NetWare inherits its File::Spec behaviour from File::Spec::Win32.
