Don't use forward or backslashes, instead use File::Spec or Path::Class:
use File::Spec; # could also use File::Spec::Functions my $file_name = File::Spec->catfile(File::Spec->updir, qw/foo bar.txt/ +); # "../foo/bar.txt" on unix # or use Path::Class; # these return Path::Class::File objects which can be used as strings # and also have some convenient methods ($file->open, etc) my $file_a = Path::Class->new()->parent->subdir("foo")->file("bar.txt" +); my $file_b = file(dir()->parent, "foo", "bar.txt');
