NAME
       File::Spec::VMS - methods for VMS file specs

SYNOPSIS
        require File::Spec::VMS; # Done internally by File::Spec if needed

DESCRIPTION
       See File::Spec::Unix for a documentation of the methods provided there. This package overrides the implementa-
       tion of these methods, not the semantics.

       canonpath (override)
           Removes redundant portions of file specifications according to VMS syntax.

       catdir (override)
           Concatenates a list of file specifications, and returns the result as a VMS-syntax directory specification.
           No check is made for "impossible" cases (e.g. elements other than the first being absolute filespecs).

       catfile (override)
           Concatenates a list of file specifications, and returns the result as a VMS-syntax file specification.

       curdir (override)
           Returns a string representation of the current directory: '[]'

       devnull (override)
           Returns a string representation of the null device: '_NLA0:'

       rootdir (override)
           Returns a string representation of the root directory: 'SYS$DISK:[000000]'

       tmpdir (override)
           Returns a string representation of the first writable directory from the following list or '' if none are
           writable:

               sys$scratch:
               $ENV{TMPDIR}

           Since perl 5.8.0, if running under taint mode, and if $ENV{TMPDIR} is tainted, it is not used.

       updir (override)
           Returns a string representation of the parent directory: '[-]'

       case_tolerant (override)
           VMS file specification syntax is case-tolerant.

       path (override)
           Translate logical name DCL$PATH as a searchlist, rather than trying to "split" string value of
           $ENV{'PATH'}.

       file_name_is_absolute (override)
           Checks for VMS directory spec as well as Unix separators.

       splitpath (override)
           Splits using VMS syntax.

       splitdir (override)
           Split dirspec using VMS syntax.

       catpath (override)
           Construct a complete filespec using VMS syntax

       abs2rel (override)
           Use VMS syntax when converting filespecs.

       rel2abs (override)
           Use VMS syntax when converting filespecs.
