Subject: Cwd::abs_path fails if path contains \n on Cygwin

Bumped into this issue in the testcases for File::chdir  ( not really useful reading https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=72924 ) and discovered that Cwd::abs_path will consistently fail with "'Cannot chdir back to /home/Kent/$X: No such file or directory at " .. messages.

The most worrying part of this is $X is trimmed at the \n in the path, and characters after the \n are lost somehow.

It seems "abs_path" on cygwin maps to "fast_abs_path", which seems to be where the culprit is hiding. Using _perl_abs_path appears not to have the same defect, for whatever reason.

So, attached is a test file that replicates both my example problem scenario and a variety of other things that seem to work somewhat, for whatever reason, the only one of which appears not to work is Cwd::abs_path

Test failure is demonstrated on a rather recent blead 5.15.6 , but the problem also has been tested to happen on 5.14.1

Test output:

 

$ perl ./test.t
ok 1 - Can concat dirs with \n
ok 2 - mkdir is nonfatal with \n
ok 3 - chdir is nonfatal with \n
not ok 4 - abs_path doesn't fatal on \n
