The name of a directory is not the same as its pathname, so why don't you use splitpath and catpath?

    Sure. But let's not stray off-topic :)
    use File::Spec::Functions qw(catdir catpath splitdir splitpath); my ($volume, $directories, $file) = splitpath '//special/semantic//pat +h/definition'; my @dir = splitdir $directories; my $dir1 = catdir @dir; # '/special/semantic/path' my $dir2 = join '/', @dir; # '//special/semantic//path/' my $path1 = catpath $volume, $dir1, $file; # '/special/semantic/path/d +efinition' my $path2 = catpath $volume, $dir2, $file; # '//special/semantic//path +/definition'

      The name of a directory is not the same as its pathname

    There's always confusion with file nomenclature. See File system nomenclature. Death to path!
