NAME
File::HomeDir::Test - Prevent the accidental creation of user-owned files during testing SYNOPSIS
use Test::More test => 1; use File::HomeDir::Test; use File::HomeDir; DESCRIPTION
File::HomeDir::Test is a File::HomeDir driver intended for use in the test scripts of modules or applications that write files into user- owned directories. It is designed to prevent the pollution of user directories with files that are not part of the application install itself, but were created during testing. These files can leak state information from the tests into the run-time usage of an application, and on Unix systems also prevents tests (which may be executed as root via sudo) from writing files which cannot later be modified or removed by the regular user.

This module provides Windows-specific implementations for determining common user directories. In normal usage this module will always be used via File::HomeDir. Internally this module will use Win32::GetFolderPath to fetch the location of your directories. As a result of this, in certain unusual situations (usually found inside large organisations) the methods may return UNC paths such as "\cifs.localhome$". If your application runs on Windows and you want to have it work comprehensively everywhere, you may need to implement your own handling for these paths as they can cause strange behaviour. For example, stat calls to UNC paths may work but block for several seconds, but opendir() may not be able to read any files (creating the appearance of an existing but empty directory). To avoid complicating the problem any further, in the rare situation that a UNC path is returned by "GetFolderPath" the usual -d validation checks will not be done. SUPPORT
