Node.js Question

path has no method 'parse' in Meteor JS

I have tried this code in meteor js but it will display error "TypeError: Object #Object> has no method 'parse'"

path = Npm.require('path')
filename = path.parse('/home/user/dir/file.txt')

but in the documentaion in node js parse method should exisit in path library

Any tips?
