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
    $ENV{'TMP'}
    $ENV{'TEMP'}
    C:/temp

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

case_tolerant
Override Unix. Cygwin case-tolerance depends on managed mount settings and as with MsWin32 on GetVolumeInformation() $ouFsFlags == FS_CASE_SENSITIVE, indicating the case significance when comparing file specifications. Default: 1
