  • On that note, I submit that File::Path is misnamed. The summary of the module is given as "create or remove directory trees." In other words, it's mkdir -p and rm -rf in Perl.

    Convenient to have, hard to find.

      It is a very useful module. However, the naming is a bit screwy. If it's called File::Path, why does it have mkpath() and rmtree(). Surely it should be rmpath() in that case?

      Anyway, it's another handy core module that people don't notice because of the name, sigh.
