[tpm] How determine the real directory path

Hello all,

I want to copy files from one directory to another where the directory paths are something like:
/a/b/c to /x/y/z

I need to detect if the two directory paths are identical after symbolic links are resolved, in order to skip the file copy.

Using File::Copy::copy sets $! to ‘No such file or directory’

Using cp from a shell prompt gives an error like:
cp: `/a/b/c/foo.txt' and `/x/y/z/foo.txt' are the same file

Anyone have an idea how to resolve this?
