in thread Full path to the current file?

OP said I have a module that needs to know its path in order to access another file in the same location. -- the second step of File::Basename is to fulfill that requirement (even though he didn't directly ask for it).

Other shell (bash) solutions:

# setup cd /var/tmp/ touch foo f='../../var/tmp/foo' # for just the directory: d=`(cd ${f%/*} && pwd)` #or: d=`dirname $f` d=`cd $d && pwd` # for the filename (rel2abs): d=`dirname $f` d=`cd $d && pwd` f=`basename $f` f=`/bin/ls $d/$f`
