       File::Spec::Win32 - methods for Win32 file specs

	require File::Spec::Win32; # Done internally by File::Spec if needed

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

	   Returns a string representation of the null device.

	   Returns a string representation of the first existing directory from the following


	   The SYS:/temp is preferred in Novell NetWare and the C:\system\temp for Symbian (the
	   File::Spec::Win32 is used also for those platforms).

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

	   MSWin32 case-tolerance depends on GetVolumeInformation() $ouFsFlags ==
	   FS_CASE_SENSITIVE, indicating the case significance when comparing file
	   specifications.  Since XP FS_CASE_SENSITIVE is effectively disabled for the NT
	   subsubsystem.  See http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2007-07/msg00891.html Default: 1

	   As of right now, this returns 2 if the path is absolute with a volume, 1 if it's
	   absolute with no volume, 0 otherwise.

	   Concatenate one or more directory names and a filename to form a complete path ending
	   with a filename

	   No physical check on the filesystem, but a logical cleanup of a path. On UNIX
	   eliminated successive slashes and successive "/.".  On Win32 makes

		   dir1\dir2\dir3\..\..\dir4 -> \dir\dir4 and even
		   dir1\dir2\dir3\...\dir4   -> \dir\dir4

	       ($volume,$directories,$file) = File::Spec->splitpath( $path );
	       ($volume,$directories,$file) = File::Spec->splitpath( $path,
								     $no_file );

	   Splits a path into volume, directory, and filename portions. Assumes that the last
	   file is a path unless the path ends in '\\', '\\.', '\\..'  or $no_file is true.  On
	   Win32 this means that $no_file true makes this return ( $volume, $path, '' ).

	   Separators accepted are \ and /.

	   Volumes can be drive letters or UNC sharenames (\\server\share).

	   The results can be passed to "catpath" to get back a path equivalent to (usually
	   identical to) the original path.

	   The opposite of catdir().

	       @dirs = File::Spec->splitdir( $directories );

	   $directories must be only the directory portion of the path on systems that have the
	   concept of a volume or that have path syntax that differentiates files from

	   Unlike just splitting the directories on the separator, leading empty and trailing
	   directory entries can be returned, because these are significant on some OSs. So,

	       File::Spec->splitdir( "/a/b/c" );


	       ( '', 'a', 'b', '', 'c', '' )

	   Takes volume, directory and file portions and returns an entire path. Under Unix,
	   $volume is ignored, and this is just like catfile(). On other OSs, the $volume become

   Note For File::Spec::Win32 Maintainers
       Novell NetWare inherits its File::Spec behaviour from File::Spec::Win32.
