According to the documentation for Path::Class::Dir, $dir->parent "Returns the parent directory of $dir. Note that this is the logical parent, not necessarily the physical parent." The need to mention this is a clear indication there should be a means of getting the physical path ("->realpath") for files and dirs. Example use: use Path::Class qw( file ); use lib file($0)->realpath->dir->subdir('lib'); In the example, realpath allows us to find the correct library directory even when the program is launched via a symlink.
Subject: Add a means of getting the physical path (->realpath)
