    Also remember that windows has the tilde, which is nice for situations where spaces in filenames can become problems:

    my $crtdir = "C:\\progra~1\\secure~1\\";

    Update: Gellyfish is right -- it is a good idea to verify. But this is moot in light of ikegami's post.

    "The term clinical depression finds its way into too many conversations these days. One has a sense that a catastrophe has occurred in the psychic landscape." --Leonard Cohen.

      You may not want to blindly do <first six chars of file or dir name>~1 but check using dir /x what the shortened version would be.


      No need, Perl (and chdir specifically) can handle long file names.
