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


This module provides Darwin-specific implementations for determining common user directories using Cocoa API through Mac::SystemDirectory. In normal usage this module will always be used via File::HomeDir.

Theoretically, this should return the same paths as both of the other Darwin drivers.

Because this module requires Mac::SystemDirectory, if the module is not installed, File::HomeDir will fall back to File::HomeDir::Darwin.


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
