File::Spec::Win32(3)   Perl Programmers	Reference Guide	  File::Spec::Win32(3)

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 provided	there.
       This package overrides the implementation of these methods, not the
       semantics.

       devnull
	   Returns a string representation of the null device.

       tmpdir
	   Returns a string representation of the first	existing directory
	   from	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\temp
	   for Symbian (the File::Spec::Win32 is used also for those
	   platforms).

	   If running under taint mode,	and if the environment variables 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.html Default: 1

       file_name_is_absolute
	   As of right now, this returns 2 if the path is absolute with	a
	   volume, 1 if	it's absolute with no volume, 0	otherwise.

       catfile
	   Concatenate one or more directory names and a filename to form a
	   complete path ending	with a filename

       canonpath
	   No physical check on	the filesystem,	but a logical cleanup of a
	   path. 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	differentiates files from directories.

	   Unlike just splitting the directories on the	separator, leading
	   empty and trailing directory	entries	can be returned, because these
	   are significant on 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. Under Unix, $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.
