Bot::Cobalt::Frontend::RC - Read and write instance RC files
use Bot::Cobalt::Frontend::RC qw/ rc_read rc_write /; my ($base, $etc, $var) = rc_read($rcfile_path); rc_write($rcfile_path, $base_path);
Bot::Cobalt RC files are small per-instance YAML configuration files used by the default frontends to determine the location of configuration ('etc') and dynamic data ('var') directories.
An example RC file might look like:
--- BASE: /home/cobalt/cobalt2 ETC: /home/cobalt/cobalt2/etc VAR: /home/cobalt/cobalt2/var
rc_read() takes the path to a preexisting RC file and returns a list of three elements; the base directory path, 'etc' path, and 'var' path, respectively.
rc_write() takes the path to the destination RC file and a base directory path from which 'etc' and 'var' directories are constructed.
Returns the actual (parsed) base path on success, croaks on failure.
