|Subject:||VMS support for Unix and extended file specifications.|
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.
