in reply to changing the path name to unix style.

I don't know as it is a "builtin" but you could use File::Spec to achieve the same results.

use strict; use File::Spec; use File::Spec::Unix; my $path = "C:\\Dir1\\Dir2"; print "Path before change :$path:\n"; $path =~ s/\\/\//g; print "Path after change :$path:\n"; ##################################### my $fs_path = File::Spec->catdir('C:','Dir1','Dir2'); print "Path before change :$fs_path:\n"; $fs_path=File::Spec::Unix->catdir($fs_path); print "Path after change :$fs_path:\n";

    It's not a builtin-part-of-the-language, but File::Spec is builtin-part-of-the-core-distribution (see perlmodlib for the complete list).

    While reading the title of OP, I was also thinking of using File::Spec module. In my version, however, usage of that module would have been limited only to get the path separator for the host OS|file system, and '/' would have been used literally per request.
