NAME ^

File::PathConvert - DEPRECATED: USE File::Spec and Cwd::abs_path().

SYNOPSIS ^

    *** THIS MODULE (File::PathConvert) IS DEPRECATED. ****

    There are several known bugs, and it is not being actively
    maintained since all functionality is now available in
    modules (Cwd.pm and File::Spec) bundled in every Perl
    distribution of recent vintage.  This version is provided to
    fix a few bugs and to get the word out about the
    deprecation.

    Please use Cwd::abs_path() instead of
    File::PathConvert::realpath() and File::Spec methods instead
    of all other path manipulation functions in this module.

    If you use setfstype, you probably want to access a File::Spec::Foo
    module for the appropriate operating system.

    There is also a version of File::Spec on CPAN for backwards
    compatability.

    Thank you,

    Barrie Slaymaker <barries@slaysys.com>
