MirOS Manual: File::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 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
             C:/temp

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