NAME ^

File::AnySpec - perform operations on foreign (remote) file names

SYNOPSIS ^

 ###### 
 # Subroutine Interface

DESCRIPTION ^

Methods in this package, perform operations on file specifications for operating systems other then the current site operating system. The input variable $fspec tells the methods in this package the file specification for file names used as input to the methods. Thus, when using methods in this package, the method may load up to two File::Spec submodules methods and neither of them is a submodule for the current site operating system.

Supported operating system file specifications are as follows:

 MacOS
 MSWin32
 os2
 VMS
 epoc

Of course since, the variable $^O contains the file specification for the current site operating system, it may be used for the $fspec variable.

fspec_glob method

  @globed_files = File::AnySpec->fspec_glob($fspec, @files)

The fspec_glob method BSD globs each of the files in @files where the file specification for each of the files is $fspec.

fspec2fspec method

 $to_file = File::AnySpec->fspec2fspec($from_fspec, $to_fspec $from_file, $nofile)

THe fspec2fspec method translate the file specification for $from_file from the $from_fspec to the $to_fpsce. Supplying anything for $nofile, tells the fspec2fspec method that $from_file is a directory tree; otherwise, it is a file.

fspec2os method

  $os_file = File::AnySpec->fspec2os($fspec, $file, $no_file)

The fspec2os method translates a file specification, $file, from the current operating system file specification to the $fspec file specification. Supplying anything for $nofile, tells the fspec2fspec method that $from_file is a directory tree; otherwise, it is a file.

fspec2pm method

 $pm_file = File::AnySpec->fspec2pm( $fspec, $relative_file )

The fspec2pm method translates a filespecification $file in the $fspce format to the Perl module formate.

os2fspec method

 $file = File::AnySpec->os2fspec($fspec, $os_file, $no_file)

The fspec2os method translates a file specification, $file, from the current operating system file specification to the $fspec file specification. Supplying anything for $nofile, tells the fspec2fspec method that $from_file is a directory tree; otherwise, it is a file.

QUALITY ASSURANCE ^

Running the test script 'AnySpec.t' found in the "File-AnySpec-$VERSION.tar.gz" distribution file verifies the requirements for this module.

All testing software and documentation stems from the Software Test Description (STD) program module 't::File::AnySpec', found in the distribution file "File-AnySpec-$VERSION.tar.gz".

The 't::File::AnySpec' STD POD contains a tracebility matix between the requirements established above for this module, and the test steps identified by a 'ok' number from running the 'AnySpec.t' test script.

The t::File::AnySpec' STD program module '__DATA__' section contains the data to perform the following:

To perform all the above, prepare and run the automation software as follows:

NOTES ^

FILES

The installation of the "File-AnySpec-$VERSION.tar.gz" distribution file installs the 'Docs::Site_SVD::File_AnySpec' SVD program module.

The __DATA__ data section of the 'Docs::Site_SVD::File_AnySpec' contains all the necessary data to generate the POD section of 'Docs::Site_SVD::File_AnySpec' and the "File-AnySpec-$VERSION.tar.gz" distribution file.

To make use of the 'Docs::Site_SVD::File_AnySpec' SVD program module, perform the following:
