in reply to Need to change directory string.

"..Is there easier way to put this?.."

Another way is to use canonpath method from File::Spec like so:

use strict; use warnings; use File::Spec qw(canonpath); my $dir_str = "test/home/players/demo//thumbs/super.jpg"; print File::Spec->canonpath($dir_str);
Output:
test/home/players/demo/thumbs/super.jpg

NOTE:
No physical check on the filesystem, but a logical cleanup of a path.

If you tell me, I'll forget.
If you show me, I'll remember.
if you involve me, I'll understand.
