Manual Reference Pages - FILE::SPEC::NATIVE (3)
File::Spec::Native - Use native OS implementation of File::Spec from a subclass
# This serves little purpose on its own but can be useful in some situations
# For example:
use Path::Class 0.24;
# convert foreign file type into native type
# without having to know what the current OS is
foreign_file(Win32 => $win32_path)->as_foreign("Native");
# or to build a file-spec dynamically (possibly taking the type from input):
my $type = get_requested_file_spec(); # can return "Native"
foreign_file($type => $file_path);
# having $type be "Native" is an alternative to having to do:
my $file = $type ? foreign_file($type, $file_path) : file($file_path);
This module is a stupid hack to make the default File::Spec behavior
available from a subclass. This can be useful when using another module
that expects a subclass of File::Spec but you want to use
the current, native OS format (automatically detected by File::Spec).
For example: as_foreign in Path::Class (as of version 0.24)
allows you to translate a Path::Class object from one OS format to another.
However, there is no way to specify that you want to translate the path into
the current, native OS format without guessing at what that format is
(which may include peeking into @File::Spec::ISA).
This module @ISA File::Spec.
