       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

	   Returns a string representation of the null device.

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


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

	   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 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 directories.

	   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 significant.
