NAME
       File::Spec::Unix - methods used by File::Spec

SYNOPSIS
       require File::Spec::Unix;

DESCRIPTION
       Methods for manipulating file specifications.

METHODS
       canonpath
         No physical check on the filesystem, but a logical cleanup of a path.
         On UNIX eliminated successive slashes and successive "/.".

       catdir
         Concatenate two or more directory names to form a complete path
         ending with a directory. But remove the trailing slash from the
         resulting string, because it doesn't look good, isn't necessary and
         confuses OS2. Of course, if this is the root directory, don't cut off
         the trailing slash :-)

       catfile
         Concatenate one or more directory names and a filename to form a
         complete path ending with a filename

       curdir
         Returns a string representing of the current directory.  "." on UNIX.

       rootdir
         Returns a string representing of the root directory.  "/" on UNIX.

       updir
         Returns a string representing of the parent directory.  ".." on UNIX.

       no_upwards
         Given a list of file names, strip out those that refer to a parent
         directory. (Does not strip symlinks, only '.', '..', and
         equivalents.)

       file_name_is_absolute
         Takes as argument a path and returns true, if it is an absolute path.

       path
         Takes no argument, returns the environment variable PATH as an array.

       join
         join is the same as catfile.

       nativename
         TBW.
