The pod in File::Spec::Cygwin 3.56_02 says file_name_is_absolute True is returned if the file name begins with "drive_letter:", ... but from the code I take it "drive_letter:/" and "drive_letter:\" are the absolute forms meant there, not anything beginning "drive_letter:". -- The sigfile English idioms series: "When the cat's away the mice will play" -- in the absence of authority there will be wrongdoing.
