FP::Path

SYNOPSIS

    use FP::Equal;
    use FP::Path;

    my $p= FP::Path->new_from_string ("a/../b/C")
           ->add(FP::Path->new_from_string("../d/../e"), 0);
    is $p->string, 'a/../b/C/../d/../e';
    is $p->xclean->string, 'b/e';
    ok not equal($p->xclean, $p);
    ok equal($p->xclean, $p->xclean); # obviously, assuming purity

    # or use the (evil?) constructor function export feature:
    use FP::Path "path";
    is path("a/../b/C")->xclean->string, "b/C";

DESCRIPTION

Not really sure why I'm creating something from scratch here? It might be cleaner:

This doesn't do I/O (access the file system, ask the system for the hostname, etc.), and it doesn't resolve ".." unless when told to (`perhaps_clean_dotdot` and derived methods (incl. `xclean` etc.)).

TODO

Port / merge with https://github.com/pflanze/chj-schemelib/blob/master/cj-posixpath.scm ?

Provide `string_to_path` constructor function?
