Description:

I have updated this code today (22 July, 2000)

This lib is an overkill approach to dealing with vagaries of paths on Win32.

Please see the POD below the code itself, it explains it more clearly (I think) than the previous lengthy description did.

require "winsane.pl";

PathParsing FILENAMESPEC, EXTN, OUTPUT-EXTN

PathParsing FILENAMESPEC

=over 5

If invoked in a B<scalar> context the subroutine C<PathParsing> will r
+eturn a verified full path specification (fully qualified name) for t
+he file name passed to it (possibly a DOS-8.3 shortname-with-path -- 
+as would always happen by drag-and-drop operations on Windows 95|8 or
+ NT or 2K?).

If invoked in a B<list> context, it will return a B<3-member list> con
+sisting of:

I<(1)> the verified long file name only (bare, no prepended path speci
+fication) -- that is, the Win32 LFN version of the input filename spe
+c passed to it, and

I<(2)> the (possible) output filename, and

I<(3)> the containing directory specification (again, verified to actu
+ally exist on the local filesystem, and in win32 LFN version, not sho
+rtened for DOS)..

=back

Scenario: C<require> this lib in a Perl .bat script which processes a 
+number of files in some way which involves format conversion and ther
+efore changing of desired filename suffix.

=head2 EXAMPLES

I<LIST invocation>:

my ($real_name, $converted_to, $in_this_dir) = &PathParsing ('file.ext
+n', '.extn', '.new');

I<SCALAR invocation>:

perl -e "require 'winsane.pl'; @E=split /\s+/, qx'dir *.txt'; for (@E)
+ {print \"\n\",($s=&PathParsing ($_));};"

=head2 NOTES

The arguments to C<PathParsing> need to be the filename specification,
+ the filename extension (if known), and the intended filename extensi
+on for the output file (assuming C<winsane> is being used this way). 
+The first argument is the only B<required> parameter. If invoked in a

B<Please note also this general issue>:

NAME

``winsane.pl''

SYNOPSIS

require ``winsane.pl'';

PathParsing FILENAMESPEC, EXTN, OUTPUT-EXTN

PathParsing FILENAMESPEC

If invoked in a scalar context the subroutine PathParsing will retur n a verified full path specification (fully qualified name) for the file name passed to it (possibly a DOS-8.3 shortname-with-path -- as would always happen by drag-and-drop operations on Windows 95|8 o r NT or 2K?).

If invoked in a list context, it will return a 3-member list con sisting of:

(1) the verified long file name only (bare, no prepended path specification) -- that is, the Win32 LFN version of the input filename spec passed to it, and

(2) the (possible) output filename, and

(3) the containing directory specification (again, verified to actually exist on the loca l filesystem, and in win32 LFN version, not shortened for DOS)..

Scenario: require this lib in a Perl .bat script which processes a number of files in some way which involves format conversion and therefore changing of desired filename suffix.

EXAMPLES

LIST invocation:

my ($real_name, $converted_to, $in_this_dir) = &PathParsing ('file.extn', '.extn', '.new');

SCALAR invocation:

perl -e ``require 'winsane.pl'; @E=split /\s+/, qx'dir *.txt'; for (@E) {print \''\n\``,($s=&P athParsing ($_));};''

NOTES

The arguments to PathParsing need to be the filename specification, the filename exte nsion (if known), and the intended filename extension for the output file (assuming winsane is being used this way). The first argument is the only required parameter. If i nvoked in a scalar context, it is the only parameter that makes sense:

Please note also this general issue:

On Win95 Perl's environment does not know its own identity (that is, Perl has no value for $^O -- Operating System -- so one must cagily sus it out.
