Subject: rel2abs fails to check the current working directory inside a forked process under Win32
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 711b
Hi, rel2abs fails to check the current working directory when called within a forked Win32 process. Here is a buggy program: #!perl -wl use strict; use File::Spec; use Cwd; my $localName = 'test_dir\test_file'; my $pid = fork; # Buggy when $pid == 0 and works as expected when $pid != 0 if ($pid == 0) {     print getcwd;  # Output: C:/dev     chdir 'C:/temp';     print getcwd;  # Output: C:/temp     print File::Spec->rel2abs($localName);     # Output: C:\dev\test_dir\test_file         # The output of rel2abs should have been: C:\temp\test_dir\test_file } It works as expected in Linux. Hope you will look into it. Regards, Alan Haggai Alavi. -- The difference makes the difference
