File::Slurp::Shortcuts - Several shortcut functions for File::Slurp
# instead of 'use File::Slurp', you 'use File::Slurp::Shortcuts' instead
File::Slurp::Shortcuts is a drop-in replacement for File::Slurp, offering more shortcut functions for convenience. It exports all File::Slurp exports. It currently also adds autochomping to read_file().
About autochomping: It is supposed to be in the upcoming version of File::Slurp, but since I'm tired of waiting, this module is the band-aid solution. It wraps read_file() (and slurp()) so it handles the chomp option. It reads in file containing, e.g. "foo\n" into Perl data as "foo".
For the complete list of functions available, see File::Slurp. Below are functions introduced by File::Slurp::Shortcuts:
read_file('path', chomp=>1, ...)
Alias for read_file_c
read_file('path', chomp=>1, err_mode=>'quiet', ...)
I personally use this a lot to retrieve configuration value from files.
Alias for read_file_cq
read_file('path', err_mode=>'quiet', ...)
I personally use this a lot to read files that are optional.
Alias for read_file_q
