On systems where some filesystems are case tolerant and others are not, the case_tolerant method produces invalid results. This can happen at least in these two cases: - Mac OS X has support for creating and mounting any mixture of native case tolerant and case intolerant file systems - Linux systems where an ntfs samba filesystem is mounted. Two things need to happen: - the pod for case_tolerant should indicate the bug manifestation when no argument is provided - the case_tolerant method should take an optional argument that, if provided, detects the filesystem and determines if it is case tolerant.

The original post to this ticket appears to have been re-posted as https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=37251#txn-480725. There has been extensive discussion since then in #37251. That makes this ticket superfluous. It should be closed. Thank you very much. Jim Keenan
