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 provided 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 directory: '[]'

       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 separators.

       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.
