As well as File::Spec you might also want to take a look at Path::Class. It's not core, but has a much saner API in my opinion.

[Corion]: GotToBTru: Heh ;) I'm not really endorsing it, as I found that any gains made through it are easily squandered by the hours spent on configuring it. At least in my case :)
[GotToBTru]: Like most Swiss Army Knives, you can cut yourself trying to find the blade you actually want
[GotToBTru]: i am satisfied with the default settings turning the seemingly random formatting into something reliable
[Corion]: GotToBTru: Yeah, I started a quick(ly implemented but slowly running) implementation of a program that would guess the "best" configuration (that is, least amount of changes) from my code, but then found that it stops parsing the source as soon as it ..
[GotToBTru]: sadly, it can't do anything about this
[Corion]: ... encounters sub foo($bar,$baz) {, which is something I like nowadays
[Corion]: GotToBTru: Yeah, that stuff is hard to do away automatically ;)
[GotToBTru]: yeah, you mentioned it could not handle signatures
