File::Spec::CygwiPerl)Programmers ReferenceFile::Spec::Cygwin(3p)


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 over-
       rides the implementation of these methods, not the seman-
       tics.

       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.
