DESCRIPTION         top

       pmPathSeparator is a convenience method that returns ``/'' in
       the civilized world.  For Windows platforms you may get ``/'' or
       ``\'' depending on the run-time environment.

       The most common use scenario is to use pmPathSeparator to
       construct the full pathname for a file from a known directory
       name and a relative file name.
