File::HomeDir is a module for locating the directories that are "owned" by a
user (typicaly your user) and to solve the various issues that arise trying to
find them consistently across a wide variety of platforms.
The end result is a single API that can find your resources on any platform,
making it relatively trivial to create Perl software that works elegantly and
correctly no matter where you run it.
