platform stuff

I'm writing a module that will probably be used on different OS platforms.

I'm wondering if things like directory delimiters and PATH delimiters
are going to be an issue.

I don't have a windows box to try things out on. :)

But I thought ActiveState's version of Perl took care of stuff like that.

Is that true?

Is there a FAQ on portability issues such as this available for browsing?

There was a time
A wind that blew so young
For this could be the biggest sky
And I could have the faintest idea
