Module Version: 1.1   Source   Latest Release: perl-5.6.2

NAME ^

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

SYNOPSIS ^

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

DESCRIPTION ^

See File::Spec and File::Spec::Unix. This package overrides the implementation of these methods, not the semantics.

This module is still in beta. Cygwin-knowledgeable folks are invited to offer patches and suggestions.

canonpath

Any \ (backslashes) are converted to / (forward slashes), and then File::Spec::Unix canonpath() is called on the result.

file_name_is_absolute

True is returned if the file name begins with drive_letter:, and if not, File::Spec::Unix file_name_is_absolute() is called.

tmpdir (override)

Returns a string representation of the first existing directory from the following list:

    $ENV{TMPDIR}
    /tmp
    C:/temp

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