Oh, I wish I were wrong, ww—believe me. And if you can demonstrate with working Perl code examples and accompanying test cases that I'm wrong, no one will be more thrilled than I will be.

Perl's built-in functions don't use the Windows API that they must use if they are to work correctly with Unicode file names, paths that exceed MAX_PATH, and junction points. At least this is how it has always been until the last time I researched the topic. If Perl's limitations with respect to file and folder handling on Windows have been fixed very recently, that's terrific. But I don't think they have or I'd know about it already.
