in reply to How to find the file owner on win32

I, too, find it a bit surprising that there isn't a CPAN module to handle this. A logical place for it would be in Win32::FileSecurity, but that module appears to be quite stale. In a bit of Googling, I did come across this module, but I'm always a bit leery of non-CPAN stuff.

This may be a good opportunity for someone to write a module. There's information on MSDN on how to do this programmatically from C, so it wouldn't be too hard to write a DLL that can be used via Win32::API. Heck, I may even try to put something together if I feel overly motivated this weekend.
