This document describes version 0.025 of Data::Sah::Filter::perl::Path::strip_slashes (from Perl distribution Sah-Schemas-Path), released on 2023-11-23.


This filter rule removes extra slashes (e.g. "/foo//bar" becomes "/foo/bar") and trailing slash.

Regarding trailing slash: functions might not expect a filename or dirname to have a trailing slash (e.g. -d, opendir(), etc will not work if we add slash to a directory name), but shell tab completion usually adds a trailing slash. So this filter rule provides the convenience of stripping the trailing slash for the functions.

To contribute, you can send patches by email/via RT, or send pull requests on GitHub.

Most of the time, you don't need to build the distribution yourself. You can simply modify the code, then test via:

 % prove -l

If you want to build the distribution (e.g. to try to install it locally on your system), you can install Dist::Zilla, Dist::Zilla::PluginBundle::Author::PERLANCAR, Pod::Weaver::PluginBundle::Author::PERLANCAR, and sometimes one or two other Dist::Zilla- and/or Pod::Weaver plugins. Any additional steps required beyond that are considered a bug and can be reported to me.
