3 - Fixed and clarified the behavior of splitpath() with a $no_file
4 argument on VMS. [Craig A. Berry, Peter Edwards]
5
6 - Removed some function prototypes and other Perl::Critic violations.
7
8 - canonpath() and catdir() and catfile() on Win32 now make an
9 explicit (and unnecessary) copy of their arguments right away,
10 because apparently if we don't, we sabotage all of Win32dom. [RT
11 #33675]
12
13 - The Makefile.PL now has 'use 5.005;' to explicitly show what
14 minimum version of perl we support. [Spotted by Alexandr Ciornii]
15
163.2701 - Mon Feb 11 21:43:51 2008
17
18 - Fixed an edge case for Win32 catdir('C:', 'foo') and catfile('C:',
19 'foo.txt') (which the caller's not really supposed to do, that's
20 what catpath() is for) that changed between versions. Now we're
21 back to the old behavior, which was to return C:\foo and C:\foo.txt .
22 [Audrey Tang]
23
243.27 - Wed Jan 16 20:20:49 2008
25
26 - If strlcpy() and strlcat() aren't available on the user's system,
27 we now use ppport.h to provide them, so our C code works. [Steve
28 Peters]
29
30 - Upgraded to a newer version of ppport.h [Steve Peters]
31
323.26 - Sun Jan 13 21:59:20 2008
33
34 - case_tolerant() on Cygwin will now avoid a painful death when
35 Cygwin::mount_flags() isn't defined, as is the case for perl <
36 5.10. It will now just return 1, which is what it always did
37 before it got so smart. [Spotted by Emanuele Zeppieri]
38
39 - abs_path() on Unix(ish) platforms has been upgraded to a much later
40 version of the underlying C code from BSD. [Michael Schwern]
41
423.2501 - Mon Dec 24 20:33:02 2007
43
44 - Reimplemented abs_path() on VMS to use
45 VMS::Filespec::vms_realpath() when it's available. [John E. Malmberg]
46
47 - tmpdir() on Cygwin now also looks in $ENV{TMP} and $ENV{TEMP}.
48
49 - case_tolerant() on Cygwin and Win32 now take an optional path
50 argument, defaulting to the C drive, to check for case tolerance,
51 because this fact can vary on different volumes.
52
53 - File::Spec on Unix now uses Cwd::getcwd() rather than Cwd::cwd() to
54 get the current directory because I guess someone on p5p thought it
55 was more appropriate.
56
57 - Added a large set of File::Spec tests for the Cygwin platform.
58
59 - abs_path() now behaves correctly with symbolic links on VMS.
60
61 - Someone fixed a couple of mysterious edge cases in VMS' canonpath()
62 and splitdir().
63
643.25_01 - Sat Oct 13 21:13:57 2007
65
66 - Major fixes on Win32, including a rewrite of catdir(), catfile(),
67 and canonpath() in terms of a single body of code. [Heinrich Tegethoff]
68
69 - For Win32 and Cygwin, case-tolerance can vary depending on the
70 volume under scrutiny. When Win32API::File is available, it will
71 be employed to determine case-sensitivity of the given filesystem
72 (C: by default), otherwise we still return the default of 1. [Reini
73 Urban]
74
75 - On Cygwin, we added $ENV{'TMP'} and $ENV{'TEMP'} to the list of
76 possible places to look for tmpdir() return values. [Reini Urban]
77
78 - Added lots more tests for Cygwin. [Reini Urban]
79
80 - canonpath() with no arguments and canonpath(undef) now consistently
81 return undef on all platforms. [Spotted by Peter John Edwards]
82
83 - Fixed splitdir('') and splitdir(undef) and splitdir() to return an
84 empty list on VMS and MacOS, like it does on other platforms.
85 [Craig A. Berry]
86
87 - All .pm files now have the same $VERSION number, rather than a
88 hodgepodge of various numbers.
89
903.25 - Mon May 21 21:07:26 2007
91

RGS
92 - Added a workaround for auto-vivication-of-function-args Perl bug
93 (triggered by OS/2-specific code). [Ilya Zakharevich]
94
95 - Sync with a bleadperl change: miniperl can no longer use Win32::*
96 functions because it cannot load Win32.dll. [Jan Dubois]
97
98 - We only need to load ppport.h when building outside the core, so we
99 avoid using it when in the core.
100
1013.24 - Sun Nov 19 22:52:49 2006
102
e9475de8
SP
103 - Fixed a bug in the $ENV{PWD}-updating of Cwd::chdir() when a
104 dirhandle is passed in. [Steve Peters]
105
106 - Add perl 5.005 to the list of requirements in the
107 Build.PL/Makefile.PL/META.yml.
108
109 - Add ExtUtils::CBuilder to the list of build_requires in Build.PL.
110
111 - Improved performance of canonpath() on Unix-ish platforms - on my
112 OS X laptop it looks like it's about twice as fast. [Ruslan Zakirov]
113
1143.23 - Wed Oct 11 12:11:25 2006
115
c1e8580e
SP
116 - Yet more Win32 fixes (sigh... seems like I'm fighting a neverending
117 waterbed...). This time, fixed file_name_is_absolute() to know
118 what it's doing when the path includes a volume but a relative
119 path, like C:foo.txt . This bug had impact in rel2abs() on Win32
120 too.
121
1223.22 - Mon Oct 9 21:50:52 2006
81a4c762
SP
123
124 - Fixed the t/crossplatform.t test on Win32 (and possibly other
125 volume-aware platforms) now that rel2abs() always adds a drive
126 letter. [Reported by several parties]
127
1283.21 - Wed Oct 4 21:16:43 2006
110c90cc
SP
129
130 - Added a bunch of X<> tags to the File::Spec docs to help
131 podindex. [Gabor Szabo]
132
133 - On Win32, abs2rel('C:\one\two\t\foo', 't\bar') should return
134 '..\foo' when the cwd is 'C:\one\two', but it wasn't noticing that
135 the two relevant volumes were the same so it would return the full
136 path 'C:\one\two\t\foo'. This is fixed. [Spotted by Alexandr
137 Ciornii]
138
139 - On Win32, rel2abs() now always adds a volume (drive letter) if the
140 given path doesn't have a volume (drive letter or UNC volume).
141 Previously it could return a value that didn't have a volume if the
142 input was a semi-absolute path like /foo/bar instead of a
143 fully-absolute path like C:/foo/bar .

1453.19 Tue Jul 11 22:40:26 CDT 2006
146
147 - When abs2rel() is called with two relative paths
148 (e.g. abs2rel('foo/bar/baz', 'foo/bar')) the resolution algorithm
149 needlessly called cwd() (twice!) to turn both arguments into
150 absolute paths. Now it avoids the cwd() calls with a workaround,
151 making a big efficiency win when abs2rel() is called
152 repeatedly. [Brendan O'Dea]
153
154 - Added a build-time dependency on ExtUtils::Install version 1.39
155 when on Windows. This is necessary because version 1.39 knows how
156 to replace an in-use Cwd shared library, but previous versions
157 don't. [Suggested by Adam Kennedy]
158
159 - Fixed File::Spec::Win32->canonpath('foo/../bar'), which was
160 returning \bar, and now properly returns just bar. [Spotted by
161 Heinrich Tegethoff]
162
259de58f
SP
1633.18 Thu Apr 27 22:01:38 CDT 2006
164
165 - Fixed some problems on VMS in which a directory called "0" would be
166 treated as a second-class citizen. [Peter (Stig) Edwards]
167
168 - Added a couple of regression tests to make sure abs2rel('/foo/bar',
169 '/') works as expected. [Chia-liang Kao]
170
171 - Added a couple of regression tests to make sure catdir('/',
172 'foo/bar') works as expected. [Mark Grimes]
173
1743.17 Fri Mar 3 16:52:30 CST 2006
175
176 - The Cygwin version of Cwd::cwd() will croak if given any arguments
177 (which can happen if, for example, it's called as Cwd->cwd). Since
178 that croaking is bad, we now wrap the original cwd() in a
179 subroutine that ignores its arguments. We could skip this wrapping
180 if a future version of perl changes cygwin.c's cwd() to not barf
181 when fed an argument. [Jerry D. Hedden]
182
1833.16 Mon Jan 30 20:48:41 CST 2006
184
185 - Updated to version 3.06 of ppport.h, which provides backward
186 compatibility XS layers for older perl versions.
187
188 - Clarify in the docs for File::Spec's abs2rel() and rel2abs()
189 methods that the cwd() function it discusses is
190 Cwd::cwd(). [Spotted by Steven Lembark]
191
192 - Apparently the version of File::Path that ships with perl 5.8.5
193 (and perhaps others) calls Cwd::getcwd() with an argument (perhaps
194 as a method?), which causes it to die with a prototyping error.
195 We've eliminated the prototype by using the "(...)" arglist, since
196 "PROTOTYPE: DISABLE" for the function didn't seem to work. [Spotted
197 by Eamon Daly and others]
198
6a288e04 1993.15 Tue Dec 27 14:17:39 CST 2005
fa52125f
SP
200
201 - The Cwd::getcwd() function on *nix is now a direct pass-through to
202 the underlying getcwd() C library function when possible. This is
203 safer and faster than the previous implementation, which just did
6a288e04
SP
204 abs_path('.'). The pure-perl version has been kept for cases in
205 which the XS version can't load, such as when running under
206 miniperl. [Suggested by Nick Ing-Simmons]
fa52125f
SP
207
208 - When Cwd searches for a 'pwd' executable in the $PATH, we now stop
209 after we find the first one rather than continuing the search. We
210 also avoid the $PATH search altogether when a 'pwd' was already
211 found in a well-known and well-trusted location like /bin or
212 /usr/bin. [Suggested by Nick Ing-Simmons]
213
214 - On Win32 abs2rel($path, $base) was failing whenever $base is the
215 root of a volume (such as C:\ or \\share\dir). This has been
216 fixed. [Reported by Bryan Daimler]
217
218 - In abs2rel() on VMS, we've fixed handling of directory trees so
219 that the test $file = File::Spec::VMS->abs2rel('[t1.t2.t3]file',
220 '[t1.t2.t3]') returns 'file' instead of an empty string. [John
221 E. Malmberg]
222
223 - In canonpath() on VMS, '[]' was totally optimized away instead of
224 just returning '[]'. Now it's fixed. [John E. Malmberg]
225

SP
2263.14 Thu Nov 17 18:08:44 CST 2005
227
228 - canonpath() has some logic in it that avoids collapsing a
229 //double/slash at the beginning of a pathname on platforms where
230 that means something special. It used to check the value of $^O
231 rather than the classname it was called as, which meant that
232 calling File::Spec::Cygwin->canonpath() didn't act like cygwin
233 unless you were actually *on* cygwin. Now it does.
234
235 - Fixed a major bug on Cygwin in which catdir() could sometimes
236 create things that look like //network/paths in cases when it
237 shouldn't (e.g. catdir("/", "foo", "bar")).
238
2393.13 Tue Nov 15 23:50:37 CST 2005
240
241 - Calling tmpdir() on Win32 had the unintended side-effect of storing
242 some undef values in %INC for the TMPDIR, TEMP, and TMP entries if
243 they didn't exist already. This is probably a bug in perl itself
244 (submitted as #37441 on rt.perl.org), which we're now working
245 around. [Thomas L. Shinnick]
246
247 - Integrated a change from bleadperl - a certain #ifdef in Cwd.xs
248 needs to apply to WIN32 but not WinCE. [Vadim Konovalov]
249
250 - abs2rel() used to return the empty string when its two arguments
251 were identical, which made no sense. Now it returns
252 curdir(). [Spotted by David Golden]
253
254 - The Unix and Win32 implementations of abs2rel() have been unified.

2563.12 Mon Oct 3 22:09:12 CDT 2005

258 - Fixed a testing error on OS/2 in which a drive letter for the root
259 directory was confusing things. [Ilya Zakharevich]
260
261 - Integrated a patch from bleadperl for fixing path() on
262 Win32. [Gisle Aas]

2643.11 Sat Aug 27 20:12:55 CDT 2005

RGS
2693.10 Thu Aug 25 22:24:57 CDT 2005
270
271 - eliminate_macros() and fixpath() in File::Spec::VMS are now
272 deprecated, since they are MakeMaker-specific and now live inside
273 MakeMaker. [Michael Schwern]
274
275 - canonpath() on Win32 now collapses foo/.. (or foo\..) sections
276 correctly, rather than doing the "misguided" work it was previously
277 doing. Note that canonpath() on Unix still does NOT collapse these
278 sections, as doing so would be incorrect. [Michael Schwern]
279

RGS
2803.09 Tue Jun 14 20:36:50 CDT 2005
281
282 - Added some block delimiters (brackets) in the Perl_getcwd_sv() XS
283 function, which were necessary to separate the variable
284 declarations from the statements when HAS_GETCWD is not
285 defined. [Yves]
286
287 - Apparently the _NT_cwd() routine is never defined externally like I
288 thought it was, so I simplified the code around it.
289
290 - When cwd() is implemented using the _backtick_pwd() function, it
291 sometimes could create accidental undef entries in %ENV under perl
292 5.6, because local($hash{key}) is somewhat broken. This is now
293 fixed with an appropriate workaround. [Neil Watkiss]

2953.08 Sat May 28 10:10:29 CDT 2005
296
297 - Fixed a test failure with fast_abs_path() on Windows - it was
298 sensitive to the rootdir() change from version 3.07. [Steve Hay]

RGS
3003.07 Fri May 6 07:46:45 CDT 2005
301
302 - Fixed a bug in which the special perl variable $^O would become
303 tainted under certain versions of perl. [Michael Schwern]
304
305 - File::Spec->rootdir() was returning / on Win32. Now it returns \ .
306 [Michael Schwern]
307
308 - We now avoid modifying @_ in tmpdir() when it's not strictly
309 necessary, which reportedly provides a modest performance
310 boost. [Richard Soderberg]
311
312 - Made a couple of slight changes to the Win32 code so that it works
313 (or works better) on Symbian OS phones. [Jarkko Hietaniemi]
314
3153.06 Wed Apr 13 20:47:26 CDT 2005
316
317 (No changes in functionality)
318
319 - Added a note to the canonpath() docs about why it doesn't collapse
320 foo/../bar sections.
321
322 - The internal-only function bsd_realpath() in the XS file now uses
323 normal arg syntax instead of K&R syntax. [Nicholas Clark]
324

RGS
3253.05 Mon Feb 28 07:22:58 CST 2005
326
327 - Fixed a bug in fast_abs_path() on Win32 in which forward- and
328 backward-slashes were confusing things. [demerphq]
329
330 - Failure to load the XS code in Cwd is no longer a fatal error
331 (though failure to compile it is still a fatal error in the build
332 process). This lets Cwd work under miniperl in the core. [Rafael
333 Garcia-Suarez]
334
335 - In the t/cwd.t test, don't enforce loading from blib/ if we're
336 testing in the perl core. [Rafael Garcia-Suarez]
337
99f36a73
RGS
3383.04 Sun Feb 6 17:27:38 CST 2005
339
340 - For perls older than 5.006, the HAS_GETCWD symbol is not available,
341 because it wasn't checked for in older Configure scripts when perl
342 was built. We therefore just ask the user whether the getcwd() C
343 function is defined on their platform when their perl is old.
344 Maybe in the future we'll try to automate this. [Reported by
345 several parties]
346
347 - Remove lib/ppport.h from the distribution, so that MakeMaker
348 doesn't accidentally pick it up and install it as a lib
349 file. [Jerry Hedden]
350
351 - Fixed a testing error on VMS that occurred when a user had
352 read-access to the root of the current volume. [Craig A. Berry]
353
3543.03 Fri Jan 21 21:44:05 CST 2005
355
356 - Fixed a testing error if the first file we find in the root
357 directory is a symlink. [Blair Zajac]
358
359 - Added a test to make sure Cwd.pm is loaded from blib/ during
360 testing, which seems to be an issue in some people's environments
361 and makes it awfully hard to debug things on my end.
362
363 - Skip the _perl_abs_path() tests on Cygwin - they don't usually
364 pass, and this function isn't used there anyway, so I decided not
365 to push it. Let 'em use `cwd`.
366
3673.02 Sun Jan 9 19:29:52 CST 2005
368
369 - Fixed a bug in which Cwd::abs_path() called on a file in the root
370 directory returned strange results. [Bob Luckin]
371
372 - Straightened out the licensing details for the portion of the Cwd
373 module that comes from BSD sources. [Hugo van der Sanden]
374
375 - Removed the prototype from _perl_abs_path() and the XS version of
376 abs_path(), since all they seemed to be doing was causing people
377 grief, and since some platforms didn't have them anyway.
378
379 - Fixed a testing bug in which sometimes the wrong version of Cwd
380 (the version already installed on the user's machine) would get
381 loaded instead of the one we're building & installing.
382
383 - Sometimes getdcwd() returns a lower-case drive letter, so don't
384 require an upper-case letter in t/win32.t. [Jan Dubois]
385
386 - Fixed a memory leak in getdcwd() on win32. [Steve Hay]
387
388 - Added a copy of ppport.h to the distribution to aid compilation on
389 older versions of perl. [Suggested by Charlie Root]
390
391 - Don't bother looking for a 'pwd' executable on MSWin32 - there
392 won't be one, and looking for it can be extremely slow when lots of
393 disks are mounted. [Several people, including Andrew Burke]
394
395 - Eliminated a multi-argument form of open() that was causing a
396 syntax error on older versions of perl. [Fixed by Michael Schwern]
397
398 - The bug-fix changes for revision 0.90 of File::Spec somehow were
399 lost when I merged it into the PathTools distribution. They're
400 restored now. [Craig A. Berry]
401
402 - File::Spec->canonpath() will now reduce paths like '[d1.-]foo.dat'
403 down to '[000000]foo.dat' instead of '[]foo.dat' or 'foo.dat'.
404 This is in better accordance with the native filename syntax
405 parser. [Craig A. Berry]
406
407 - In order to remove a recursive dependency (PathTools -> Test-Simple
408 -> Test-Harness -> PathTools), we now include a copy of Test::More in
409 the distribution. It is only used for testing, it won't be installed
410 with the rest of the stuff.
411
412 - Removed some 5.6-isms from Cwd in order to get it to build with
413 older perls like 5.005.
414
415 - abs_path() on Windows was trampling on $ENV{PWD} - fixed. [Spotted
416 by Neil MacMullen]
417
418 - Added licensing/copyright statements to the POD in each .pm
419 file. [Spotted by Radoslaw Zielinski]
420
4213.01 Mon Sep 6 22:28:06 CDT 2004
422
423 - Removed an unnecessary and confusing dependency on File::Spec from
424 the Makefile.PL and the Build.PL.
425
426 - Added a 'NAME' entry to the Makefile.PL, because otherwise it won't
427 even begin to work. [Reported by many]
428
4293.00 Thu Sep 2 22:15:07 CDT 2004
430
431 - Merged Cwd and File::Spec into a single PathTools distribution.
432 This was done because the two modules use each other fairly
433 extensively, and extracting the common stuff into another
434 distribution was deemed nigh-impossible. The code in revision 3.00
435 of PathTools should be equivalent to the code in Cwd 2.21 and
436 File::Spec 0.90.
437
438==================================================================
439Prior to revision 3.00, Cwd and File::Spec were maintained as two
440separate distributions. The revision history for Cwd is shown here.
441The revision history for File::Spec is further below.

446 - Removed "NO_META" from the Makefile.PL, since I'm not building the
447 distribution with MakeMaker anyway. [Rohan Carly]

450 (platforms with '/' as the directory separator). [Craig A. Berry]

453
454 - On some implementations of perl on Win32, a memory leak (or worse?)
455 occurred when calling getdcwd(). This has been fixed. [PodMaster]
456
457 - Added tests for getdcwd() on Win32.
458
459 - Fixed a problem in the pure-perl implementation _perl_abs_path()
460 that caused a fatal error when run on plain files. [Nicholas Clark]
461 To exercise the appropriate test code on platforms that wouldn't
462 otherwise use _perl_abs_path(), run the tests with $ENV{PERL_CORE}
463 or $ENV{TEST_PERL_CWD_CODE} set.

467 - The abs_path($arg) fix from 2.18 didn't work for VMS, now it's
468 fixed there. [Craig Berry]

471
472 - Fixed a problem in which abs_path($arg) on some platforms could
473 only be called on directories, and died when called on files. This
474 was a problem in the pure-perl implementation _perl_abs_path().
475
476 - Fixed fast_abs_path($arg) in the same way as abs_path($arg) above.
477
478 - On Win32, a function getdcwd($vol) has been added, which gets the
479 current working directory of the specified drive/volume.
480 [Steve Hay]
481
482 - Fixed a problem on perl 5.6.2 when built with the MULTIPLICITY
483 compile-time flags. [Yitzchak Scott-Thoennes]
484
485 - When looking for a `pwd` system command, we no longer assume the
486 path separator is ':'.
487
488 - On platforms where cwd() is implemented internally (like Win32),
489 don't look for a `pwd` command externally. This can greatly speed
490 up load time. [Stefan Scherer]
491
492 - The pure-perl version of abs_path() now has the same prototype as
493 the XS version (;$).

496
497 - The change in 2.16 created a testing failure when tested from
498 within a path that contains symlinks (for instance, /tmp ->
499 /private/tmp).

503 - For VMS compatibility (and to conform to Cwd's documented
504 interface), in the regression tests we now compare output results
505 to an absolute path. [Craig A. Berry]

514
515 - We now use File::Spec->canonpath() and properly-escaped regular
516 expressions when comparing paths in the regression tests. This
517 fixes some testing failures in 2.13 on non-Unix platforms. No
518 changes were made in the actual Cwd module code. [Steve Hay]

523 it'll compile properly under ANSI C rules. [Jarkko Hietaniemi]

535 (Note that this release was mistakenly packaged as version 2.11, even
536 though it had an internal $VERSION variable of 2.10. Not sure how
537 THAT happened...)
538
539 - There was a dependency in the Makefile.PL on Module::Build, which
540 isn't necessary. I've removed it.

543
544 - The module should now build & install using version 5.6 of perl.
545
546 - We now note a build-time dependency on version 0.19 of
547 Module::Build, which is necessary because we don't use the standard
548 lib/-based file layout. No version of Module::Build is required if
549 you use the Makefile.PL, just if you use the Build.PL .
550
551 - Removed some gratuitous uses of 5.6-isms like our(), with the aim
552 of backporting this module to perl 5.005.
553
554 - Simplified all code that autoloads Carp.pm and calls
555 carp()/croak().
556
557 - Removed some redundant OS/2 code at the suggestion of Michael
558 Schwern and Ilya Zakharevich.
559
560 - Make sure the correct version of Cwd.pm is loaded in the regression
561 tests. [Sam Vilain]

575
576 - On VMS, directories use vmspath() and files use vmsify(), so
577 rel2abs() has to use some 'educated guessing' when dealing with
578 paths containing slashes. [Craig A. Berry]
579
580File::Spec 0.89 Sun Aug 29 19:02:32 CDT 2004
581
582 - Fixed some pathological cases on VMS which broke canonpath() and
583 splitdir(). [Richard Levitte and Craig A. Berry]
584
585 - Fixed rel2abs() on VMS when passed a unix-style relative
586 path. [Craig A. Berry]
587
588File::Spec 0.88 Thu Jul 22 23:14:32 CDT 2004
589
590 - rel2abs() on Win32 will now use the new Cwd::getdcwd() function, so
591 that things like rel2abs('D:foo.txt') work properly when the
592 current drive isn't 'D'. This requires Cwd version 2.18.
593 [Steve Hay]
594
595 - Got rid of a redundant double-backslash in a character
596 class. [Alexander Farber]
597
598 - Added much markup to pod for enhanced readability. [Andy Lester]

601
602 - With a one-line change in the tests, backported to perl 5.004.
603 [Issue reported by Barry Kemble]
604
605File::Spec 0.86 Fri Sep 26 10:07:39 CDT 2003
606
607 - This is the version released with perl 5.8.1. It is identical to
608 the code in the File::Spec beta 0.85_03.
609
610File::Spec 0.85_03 Mon Sep 15 09:35:53 CDT 2003
611
612 - On VMS, if catpath() receives volume specifiers in both its first
613 two arguments, it will now use the volume in the first argument
614 only. Previously it returned a non-syntactical result which
615 included both volumes. This change is the same in spirit to the
616 catpath() MacOS change from version 0.85_02.
617
618 - Fixed an abs2rel() bug on VMS - previously
619 abs2rel('[t1.t2.t3]file','[t1.t2]') returned '[t3]file', now it
620 properly returns '[.t3]file'.
621
622File::Spec 0.85_02 Fri Sep 12 17:11:13 CDT 2003
623
624 - abs2rel() now behaves more consistently across platforms with the
625 notion of a volume. If the volumes of the first and second
626 argument (the second argument may be implicit) do not agree, we do
627 not attempt to reconcile the paths, and simply return the first
628 argument. Previously the volume of the second argument was
629 (usually) ignored, resulting in sometimes-garbage output.
630
631 - catpath() on MacOS now looks for a volume element (i.e. "Macintosh HD:")
632 in its first argument, and then its second argument. The first
633 volume found will be used, and if none is found, none will be used.
634
635 - Fixed a problem in abs2rel() on Win32 in which the volume of the
636 current working directory would get added to the second argument if
637 none was specified. This might have been somewhat helpful, but it
638 was contrary to the documented behavior. For example,
639 abs2rel('C:/foo/bar', '/foo') used to return 'bar', now it returns
640 'C:/foo/bar' because there's no guarantee /foo is actually C:/foo .
641
642 - catdir('/', '../') on OS2 previously erroneously returned '//..',
643 and now it returns '/'.
644
645File::Spec 0.85_01 Thu Sep 11 16:18:54 CDT 2003
646
647 Working toward 0.86, the version that will be released with perl 5.8.1.
648
649 - The t/rel2abs2rel.t test now is a little friendlier about emitting
650 its diagnostic debugging output. [Jarkko Hietaniemi]
651
652 - We now only require() Cwd when it's needed, on demand. [Michael
653 Schwern, Tels]
654
655 - Fixed some POD errors and redundancies in OS2.pm and Cygwin.pm.
656 [Michael Schwern]
657
658 - The internal method cwd() has been renamed to _cwd(), since it was
659 never meant for public use. [Michael Schwern]
660
661 - Several methods in File::Spec::Unix that just return constant
662 strings have been sped up. catdir() has also been sped up there.
663 [Tels]
664
665 - Several canonpath() and catdir() bugs on Win32 have been fixed, and
666 tests added for them:
667 catdir('/', '../') -> '\\' (was '\..')
668 catdir('/', '..\\') -> '\\ (was '')
669 canonpath('\\../') -> '\\' (was '')
670 canonpath('\\..\\') -> '\\' (was '')
671 canonpath('/../') -> '\\' (was '\..')
672 canonpath('/..\\') -> '\\' (was '')
673 catdir('\\', 'foo') -> '\foo' (was '\\foo')
674
675 - catpath($volume, $dirs, $file) on Mac OS now ignores any volume
676 that might be part of $dirs, enabling catpath($volume,
677 catdir(rootdir(), 'foo'), '') to work portably across platforms.
678
679File::Spec 0.85 Tue Jul 22 11:31 CDT 2003
680
681 A bug-fix release relative to 0.84. I've forked development into a
682 "stable" branch (this one) and a more aggressive branch (as yet
683 unreleased), with an eye toward getting the stable features in perl
684 5.8.1.
685
686 - File::Spec::Mac->case_tolerant() returned 0 when it should have
687 returned 1.
688
689 - Many cases in File::Spec::Win32->abs2rel() were broken, because of
690 the way in which volumes were/weren't ignored. Unfortunately, part
691 of the regression tests were broken too. Now, if the $path
692 argument to abs2rel() is on a different volume than the $base
693 argument, the result will be an absolute path rather than the
694 broken relative path previous versions returned.
695
696 - Fixed a problem in File::Spec::Win32->canonpath, which was turning
697 \../foo into "foo" rather than \foo
698
699 - Greatly simplified the code in File::Spec::Unix->splitdir().
700
701File::Spec 0.84_01 Fri Jul 11 16:14:29 CDT 2003
702
703 No actual code changes, just changes in other distribution files
704
705 - Dependencies are now listed explicitly in the Makefile.PL and
706 Build.PL scripts, as well as in the META.yml file.
707
708 - The t/abs2rel2abs.t test should now be more friendly about skipping
709 on platforms where it can't run properly.
710
711File::Spec 0.84 Wed Jul 9 22:21:23 CDT 2003
712
713 I (Ken)'ve taken the changes from bleadperl and created a new CPAN release
714 from them, since they're pretty important changes. The highlights,
715 from what I can tell, are listed here.
716
717 - A huge number of changes to File::Spec::Mac in order to bring it in
718 line with the other platforms. This work was mostly/completely
719 done by Thomas Wegner.
720
721 - The Epoc and Cygwin platforms are now supported.
722
723 - Lots of generically-applicable documentation has been taken from
724 File::Spec::Unix and put in File::Spec.
725
726 - A Build.PL has been provided for people who wish to install via
727 Module::Build.
728
729 - Some spurious warnings and errors in the tests have been
730 eliminated. [Michael Schwern]
731
732 - canonpath() on File::Spec::Unix now honors a //node-name at the
733 beginning of a path.
734
735 - Cwd.pm wasn't being loaded properly on MacOS. [Chris Nandor]
736
737 - Various POD fixups
738
739 - Several testing patches for the Epoc and Cygwin platforms [Tels]
740
741 - When running under taint mode and perl >= 5.8, all the tmpdir()
742 implementations now avoid returning a tainted path.
743
744 - File::Spec::OS2 now implements canonpath(), splitpath(),
745 splitdir(), catpath(), abs2rel(), and rel2abs() directly rather
746 than inheriting them from File::Spec::Unix.
747
748 - Added 'SYS:/temp' and 'C:/temp' to the list of possible tmpdir()s
749 on Win32.
750
751 - catfile() on Win32 and VMS will now automatically call canonpath()
752 on its final argument.
753
754 - canonpath() on Win32 now does a much more extensive cleanup of the
755 path.
756
757 - abs2rel() on Win32 now defaults to using cwd() as the base of
758 relativity when no base is given.
759
760 - abs2rel() on Win32 now explicitly ignores any volume component in
761 the $path argument.
762
763 - canonpath() on VMS now does []foo ==> foo, and foo.000000] ==> foo].
764 It also fixes a bug in multiple [000000.foo ==> [foo translations.
765
766 - tmpdir() on VMS now uses 'sys$scratch:' instead of 'sys$scratch'.
767
768 - abs2rel() on VMS now uses '000000' in both the path and the base.
769
770File::Spec 0.82 Wed Jun 28 11:24:05 EDT 2000
771 - Mac.pm: file_name_is_absolute( '' ) now returns TRUE on all platforms
772 - Spec.pm: unbreak C<$VERSION = '0.xx'> to be C<$VERSION = 0.xx>, so
773 underscores can be used when I want to update CPAN without anyone
774 needing to update the perl repository.
775 - abs2rel, rel2abs doc tweaks
776 - VMS.pm: get $path =~ /\s/ checks from perl repository.
777 - Makefile.PL: added INSTALLDIRS => 'perl', since these are std. modules.
778 - Remove vestigial context prototypes from &rel2abs until some future
779 arrives where method prototypes are honored.
