File::Spec::Cygwin - methods for Cygwin file specs
require File::Spec::Cygwin; # Done internally by File::Spec if needed
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.
Any "\" (backslashes) are converted to "/" (forward slashes),
and then File::Spec::Unix canonpath() is called on the result.
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:
Since Perl 5.8.0, if running under taint mode, and if the environment
variables are tainted, they are not used.
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.
