1. This is offtopic on Perl mailing list.  Can anyone borrow Marc's 
differential SCSI cable from Linux-IL mailing list to beat Itamar with?
2. I think that from file handle it is not possible in general to get 
full path.  The most which you could get is the file's inode, which may 
be hard-linked to by several file paths.
3. From relative path:  find current working directory, and concatenate 
to it your relative path.
