in reply to Collapsing paths

As also pointed out in File::Specs documentation, you can use the "realpath" function from Cwd for this. This will however return an absolute path and only resolve paths which actually exist in your filesystem (this is a feature, not a bug, because it's the only way to correctly handle symlinks).


All dogma is stupid.
