NAME

File::HomeDir::Win32 - Find home directories on Win32 systems

SYNOPSIS

  use File::HomeDir::Win32;

  print "My dir is ",home()," and root's is ",home('Administrator'),"\n";

DESCRIPTION

This module provides routines for finding home directories on Win32 systems. It was designed as a companion to File::HomeDir that overrides the existing home function, which does not properly locate home directories on Windows machines.

To use both modules together:

  use File::HomeDir;

  BEGIN {
    if ($^O eq "MSWin32") {
      eval {
        require File::HomeDir::Win32;
        File::HomeDir::Win32->import();
      };
      die "$@" if ($@); 
    }
  }

or (if you have the if module),

  use File::HomeDir;
  use if ($^O eq "MSWin32"), "File::HomeDir::Win32";

The home function should work as normal.

On systems with no profiles, such as Windows 98, or in cases where it cannot find profiles, it will not override File::HomeDir. (In such cases it will die if File::HomeDir is not loaded.)
