Module of the day: Path::Class

[ #25357 ]

Very nice replacement for File::Spec: Path::Class.

Excellent API.

And a lesson learned about relative file names: avoid them once the absolute file name is known. Get to know the absolute name as soon as possible and stick with it unless there is a real reason to use relative paths.

  • This is a serious contender for the reward of "the module with the worst chosen name". By the name alone, it's impossible to devise what it's for, and the reverse is also true: it's very hard to remember what name the module has, if you actually want to use it. I failed, trying to think of the name of the module when thinking of your post, about a day later. I actually had to look at your post again.
