 #use wml::sup::path

DESCRIPTION

This include file provides the Perl functions "relpath", "canonpath" and "canonurl" which calculate relative and canonical paths/urls. For example, the relative path from /foo/path/bar/quux to /foo/path/foobar is calculated to ../../foobar and the canonical path of ./foo/./bar/../quux// is foo/quux/.
