NAME ^

File::Spec::Unix - methods used by File::Spec

SYNOPSIS ^

require File::Spec::Unix;

DESCRIPTION ^

Methods for manipulating file specifications.

METHODS ^

canonpath

No physical check on the filesystem, but a logical cleanup of a path. On UNIX eliminated successive slashes and successive "/.".

catdir

Concatenate two or more directory names to form a complete path ending with a directory. But remove the trailing slash from the resulting string, because it doesn't look good, isn't necessary and confuses OS2. Of course, if this is the root directory, don't cut off the trailing slash :-)

catfile

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

curdir

Returns a string representing of the current directory. "." on UNIX.

rootdir

Returns a string representing of the root directory. "/" on UNIX.

updir

Returns a string representing of the parent directory. ".." on UNIX.

no_upwards

Given a list of file names, strip out those that refer to a parent directory. (Does not strip symlinks, only '.', '..', and equivalents.)

file_name_is_absolute

Takes as argument a path and returns true, if it is an absolute path.

path

Takes no argument, returns the environment variable PATH as an array.

join

join is the same as catfile.

nativename

TBW.
