This is a bug report for perl from the.rob.dixon@gmail.com,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.40 running under perl 5.24.0.


-----------------------------------------------------------------
[Please describe your issue here]

 Something like

    $ perl -MFile::Path=make_path -e 'make_path q{/xxx}'

will die with

    mkdir /xxx: Permission denied at -e line 1.

I suggest that it should behave the same way as open:

    $ perl -E 'open ">", q{/xxx} or warn $!; say "But all's okay";'

which produces

    No such file or directory at -e line 1.
    But all's okay

No doubt there is a lot of code out there that relies on the current
behaviour, so the fix would have to be a option in the `use` line. However
I believe that a die that requires an `eval` on every call is very wrong
for such a simple file operation
