Cwd::utf8 - Fully UTF-8 aware Cwd
# Using the utf-8 versions of cwd, getcwd, fastcwd, fastgetcwd use Cwd::utf8; my $dir = getcwd; # Using the utf-8 versions of abs_path use Cwd::utf8 qw(abs_path); my $abs_path = abs_path($file); # Exporting no functions use Cwd::utf8 qw(:none); # NOT "use Cwd::utf8 qw();"! my $real_path = Cwd::real_path($file);
While the original Cwd functions are capable of handling UTF-8 quite well, they expects and return all data as bytes, not as characters.
This module replaces all the Cwd functions with fully UTF-8 aware versions, both expecting and returning characters.
Note: Replacement of functions is not done on DOS, Windows, and OS/2 as these systems do not have full UTF-8 file system support.
The module behaves as a pragma so you can use both
use Cwd::utf8 and
no Cwd::utf8 to turn utf-8 support on or off.
By default, cwd(), getcwd(), fastcwd(), and fastgetcwd() (and, on Win32, getdcwd()) are exported (as with the original Cwd). If you want to prevent this, use
use Cwd::utf8 qw(:none). (As all the magic happens in the module's import function, you can not simply use
use Cwd::utf8 qw())
Cwd:::utf8 marks decoding errors as fatal (default value for this setting is
Encode::FB_CROAK). If you want, you can change this by setting
Cwd::utf8::UTF8_CHECK. The value
Encode::FB_WARN reports the encoding errors as warnings, and
Encode::FB_DEFAULT will completely ignore them. Please see Encode for details. Note:
Encode::LEAVE_SRC is always enforced.
Please report any bugs or feature requests on the bugtracker website.
When submitting a bug or request, please include a test-file or a patch to an existing test-file that illustrates the bug or desired feature.
The filesystems of Dos, Windows, and OS/2 do not (fully) support UTF-8. The Cwd function will therefore not be replaced on these systems.
