NAME

     File::Spec::VMS - methods for VMS file specs

SYNOPSIS

      require File::Spec::VMS; # Done internally by File::Spec if needed

DESCRIPTION

     See File::Spec::Unix for a documentation of the methods pro-
     vided there. This package overrides the implementation of
     these methods, not the semantics.

     canonpath (override)
         Removes redundant portions of file specifications
         according to VMS syntax.

     catdir (override)
         Concatenates a list of file specifications, and returns
         the result as a VMS-syntax directory specification.  No
         check is made for "impossible" cases (e.g. elements
         other than the first being absolute filespecs).

     catfile (override)
         Concatenates a list of file specifications, and returns
         the result as a VMS-syntax file specification.

     curdir (override)
         Returns a string representation of the current direc-
         tory: '[]'

     devnull (override)
         Returns a string representation of the null device:
         '_NLA0:'

     rootdir (override)
         Returns a string representation of the root directory:
         'SYS$DISK:[000000]'

     tmpdir (override)
         Returns a string representation of the first writable
         directory from the following list or '' if none are
         writable:

             sys$scratch:
             $ENV{TMPDIR}

         Since perl 5.8.0, if running under taint mode, and if
         $ENV{TMPDIR} is tainted, it is not used.

     updir (override)
         Returns a string representation of the parent directory:
         '[-]'

     case_tolerant (override)
         VMS file specification syntax is case-tolerant.

     path (override)
         Translate logical name DCL$PATH as a searchlist, rather
         than trying to "split" string value of $ENV{'PATH'}.

     file_name_is_absolute (override)
         Checks for VMS directory spec as well as Unix separa-
         tors.

     splitpath (override)
         Splits using VMS syntax.

     splitdir (override)
         Split dirspec using VMS syntax.

     catpath (override)
         Construct a complete filespec using VMS syntax

     abs2rel (override)
         Use VMS syntax when converting filespecs.

     rel2abs (override)
         Use VMS syntax when converting filespecs.
