CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



 use File::Path::Expand;
 print expand_filename("~richardc/foo"); # prints "/home/richardc/foo"



DESCRIPTION

File::Path::Expand expands user directories in filenames. For the simple case it’s no more complex than s{^~/}{$HOME/}, but for other cases it consults getpwent and does the right thing.
