    You can use basename and dirname functions from "File::Basename" CPAN module to achieve this.

    G'day Divakar,

    The built-in module File::Spec has a number of functions for manipulating pathnames: splitpath() would be the one to use here.

    $ perl -E " use Path::Class; my $path = file(q[/ro/sham/bo.foo]); say +$path->parent; say $path->basename; " \ro\sham bo.foo
