# NAME

Parse::Path::File::Win32 - C:\Windows\file\path\support

# SYNOPSIS

    use v5.10;
use Parse::Path;

my $path = Parse::Path->new( path => 'C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32', style => 'File::Win32', ); say$path->as_string;
$path->push($path, 'DRIVERS');
say $path->as_string;$path->volume('D');
say $path->as_string; # DESCRIPTION This is a file-based path style for Windows paths. Some examples:  C:\WINDOWS c:\windows \Users C:foo\bar.txt ..\..\..\.\aaa\.\\\\\\bbb\ccc\..\ddd Arrays are, of course, not supported. Neither is quoting, as that is a product of the shell, not the path itself. Absolute paths will contain a blank first step, a la Path::Class. Though, it is recommended to use is_absolute for checking for path relativity. # EXTRA ATTRIBUTES ## volume  my$volume = $path->volume;$path->volume('Z');
\$path->volume('');  # removes the volume

Returns or sets the volume. This must be a single letter, or a blank string to remove it.

Volumes are automatically extracted and put into this attribute when passed as a path string. If transformed back into a string, it will show the volume again. Normalization will capitalize the volume, as there is no difference between C: and c:.

# CAVEATS

• Though Windows isn't case-sensitive, it does support upper and lowercase letters. Thus, there is no logic to force case on the paths (except for volume), and is left as an exercise to the user.

• UNC paths are not supported. This would be a different path style, anyway.
