Hmm. To be honest, I don't, but I'm not a Windows advocate either. So
WinPerl guys out there, please enlighten us.

I do know that there is a File::Spec, but basically this only aids in

Quasi-standards are C:\temp or C:\windows\temp. Environment could be
TEMPDIR or so. Maybe it is advisable to be able to set this as a static
