File::HomeDir::Darwin(3) Find your home and other directories on Darwin (OS X)


This module provides Mac OS X specific file path for determining common user directories in pure perl, by just using $ENV{HOME} without Carbon nor Cocoa API calls. In normal usage this module will always be used via File::HomeDir.


use File::HomeDir;

# Find directories for the current user
$home = File::HomeDir->my_home; # /Users/mylogin
$desktop = File::HomeDir->my_desktop; # /Users/mylogin/Desktop
$docs = File::HomeDir->my_documents; # /Users/mylogin/Documents
$music = File::HomeDir->my_music; # /Users/mylogin/Music
$pics = File::HomeDir->my_pictures; # /Users/mylogin/Pictures
$videos = File::HomeDir->my_videos; # /Users/mylogin/Movies
$data = File::HomeDir->my_data; # /Users/mylogin/Library/Application Support
