There is a total of 4 examples in the package. Two are for New, one doesn't use the package at all, and one incorrectly uses As by dropping the error on the floor if it's not a os.PathError.

	_, err := os.Open("non-existing")
	if err != nil {
		var pathError *os.PathError
		if errors.As(err, &pathError) {
			fmt.Println("Failed at path:", pathError.Path)
