Path::Abstract::Underload - Path::Abstract without stringification overloading
use Path::Abstract::Underload; my $path = Path::Abstract::Underload->new("/apple/banana"); # $parent is "/apple" my $parent = $path->parent; # $cherry is "/apple/banana/cherry.txt" my $cherry = $path->child("cherry.txt");
This is a version of Path::Abstract without the magic "use overload ..." stringification.
Unfortunately, without overloading, you can't do this:
my $path = Path::Abstract::Underload->new("/a/path/to/somewhere"); print "$path\n"; # Will print out something like "Path::Abstract::Underload=SCALAR(0xdffaa0)\n"
You'll have to do this instead:
print $path->get, "\n"; Will print out "/a/path/to/somewhere\n" # Note, you can also use $path->stringify or $path->path # You could also do this (but it's safer to do one of the above): print $$path, "\n";
Or, just use Path::Abstract
