VCP::Utils(3)	      User Contributed Perl Documentation	 VCP::Utils(3)

NAME
       VCP::Utils - utilities used within VCP's	modules.

SYNOPSIS
	  use VCP::Utils qw( shell_quote );

DESCRIPTION
       A mix-in	class providing	methods	shared by VCP::Source::cvs and
       VCP::Dest::cvs, mostly wrappers for calling the cvs command.

FUNCTIONS
       shell_quote
	      my $line = shell_quote \@command;
	      my $line = shell_quote @command;
	      print STDERR, $line, "\n";

	   Selectively quotes the command line to allow	it to be printed in a
	   non-vague fashion and to be pastable	in the local shell (sh/bash on
	   Unix, COMMAND.COM, etc. on Win32 and	OS2).

	   NOTE: May not be perfect; errs on the side of safety	and doesn't
	   try to escape things	right on Win32 yet.  Patches welcome.

       empty
	   Determines if a scalar value	is empty, that is not defined or zero
	   length.

       escape_filename
	   Escape a string so that it may be used as a filename.  Converts
	   characters other than "-", "_", and alphanumerics to	%NN% escape
	   sequences where NN is the ordinal value (usually the	ASCII value or
	   UTF-8 codepoint) of the character.

       start_dir_rel2abs
	      start_dir_rel2abs( $fn );

	   If $fn is a relative	path (according	to File::Spec),	converts it to
	   an absolute path using start_dir() as the base directory.

       start_dir
	   Returns the directory that was current when VCP::Utils was parsed.

       xchdir
	   Changes to a	directory (unless we're	already	in that	directory) and
	   logs	the change.  Throws an exception on error.  Sets $ENV{PWD}.

	   You should use minimal canonical paths where	possible so that
	   $ENV{PWD} is	a simple path.	Some child processes might not like
	   paths with thisdir ("/./") or updir segments	("/../").

	   Relative paths are an error.
