in reply to <JUNCTION>; how to recognize

A JUNCTION is similar to a symbolic link. So far, I have not found any window user documentation for either one. (I believe that they are behind much of the magic in windows explorer.) Cmd.exe does not appear to support either one very well, if at all. You have discovered what I would call a bug in the windows dir command. Pure perl is not any better. I would expect the file test operator to treat them like UNIX symbolic links, but perl knows that this is not quite right.
