  '/home/substack/projects/node-parents',
  '/home/substack/projects',

var dir = 'C:\\Program Files\\Maxis\\Sim City 2000\\cities';

var dirs = parents(dir, { platform : 'win32' });
console.dir(dirs);

[ 'C:\\Program Files\\Maxis\\Sim City 2000\\cities',
  'C:\\Program Files\\Maxis\\Sim City 2000',
  'C:\\Program Files\\Maxis',
  'C:\\Program Files',
  'C:' ]

methods

var parents = require('parents')

parents(dir, opts)

Return an array of the parent directories of dir, including and starting with dir. If a dir isn't specified, process.cwd() will be used.

Optionally specify an opts.platform to control whether the separator and paths works the unixy way with '/' or the windowsy way where sometimes things use '/' and sometimes they use '\\' and also there are leading drive letters and other exotic features. If opts.platform isn't specified, process.platform will be used. Anything that matches /^win/ will use the windowsy behavior.

install

With npm do:

npm install parents
