Subject: VMS support for Unix and extended file specifications.
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 757b
This patch updates File::Spec routines on VMS for the following: 1. VMS in UNIX report mode, where VMS is expected to return files in Unix Syntax. 2. Support more filenames in using the VMS Extended character set. 3. Most perl scripts I have seen expect that if you pass a UNIX format file specification into the Pathtool routines that they will return a UNIX format specification, and when you pass a VMS format specification in, they will return a VMS format specification. With VMS in the extended character set for filenames mode, that will now always be the case. With the extended character set disabled, the older behavior will be there. These routines along with support being added to vms.c are the key to Perl on VMS supporting more scripts.

Hi John, thanks for the patch. I applied it to the PathTools repository with revision 12321. I can't test on VMS, so apart from looking at the code, I'll have to trust you that you're not deleting the file system in those if(VMS) blocks ;) Best regards, Steffen
