Subject: Minor fixes for VMS - Explain test skip better.
catfile needs to be used if you are creating a file specification, as the native syntax may be different. Also VMS can appear to have a file and a directory with the same name, as when VMS is in the UNIX compatible mode, directories have a hidden ".DIR" suffix, so it is possible for a file and a directory to be present with apparently the same name. Normally when VMS is in the UNIX compatible mode, and a path could be a file or a directory, based on the usage, the directory will be used and the file will be hidden. Therefore this test case will not work on VMS, and could leave an orphan file behind if it attempts to be run.

Hi John, I was sure I had added this test at some point, but it appears that it was lost in the shuffle. I have now added it to my local repo and it will appear in the next release. Thanks, David
Will be in next dev release scheduled for this evening. https://github.com/rpcme/File-Path/commit/f2e544eb91bfd198f796b32923d7c559fc6bf05d
