I'm on strawberry perl, the other way and it can't find the directory at all.

    So you're saying that you get the specified warning when you try to chdir to Z:/Partners/Wilsons/2push_test?

    Can you, from the command line, cd Z:\Partners\Wilsons\2push_test successfully?

    These are all Strawberry Perl installs, that I ran this code against:

    use warnings; use strict; use feature 'say'; use Cwd; say getcwd(); chdir 'c:/repos' or die $!; say getcwd();


    c:\>berrybrew exec perl Perl-5.24.0_64 ============== c:/ c:/repos Perl-5.22.2_64 ============== c:/ c:/repos Perl-5.18.4_64 ============== c:/ c:/repos Perl-5.10.1_32 ============== c:/ c:/repos

    So using forward slashes without escaping them most definitely works all the way back to at least 5.10.
