C: does not reference the root directory of a volume

I understand that. What I'm trying to get guidance on is how likely it is that people would use "C:" and not mean the root directory.

If I understand you correctly, what probably needs to happen is to immediately turn C: into the absolute path for cwd on that volume via getdcwd.

Is that right?

    Yes. I would consider it highly likely that people use the system as documented.

    Yes, getcwd getdcwd is the function that needs to get involved to make C: resolve correctly.

      Thank you. A fixed Path::Tiny has been released to CPAN as version 0.029.

        Cwd::getcwd doesn't take arguments, but ::realpath does

        $ prove t\zzz-spec.t t\zzz-spec.t .. 1/? # Failed test 'path('C:')' # at t\zzz-spec.t line 206. # got: 'C:/Documents and Settings/username' # expected: 'D:/perl/cpan/build/Path-Tiny-0.029-r_iWUJ' # Looks like you failed 1 test of 91. t\zzz-spec.t .. Dubious, test returned 1 (wstat 256, 0x100) Failed 1/91 subtests

        $ perl -MCwd -le " print Cwd::getcwd(q{C:})" D:/perl/cpan/build $ perl -MCwd -le " print Cwd::realpath(q{C:})" C:/Documents and Settings/username
