Test::File::Cleaner::State - State information for Test::File::Cleaner
A Test::File::Cleaner::State object stores the state information for a single file or directory, and performs tasks to restore old states.
Creates a new State object for a given file name. The file or directory must exist.
Returns a new Test::File::Cleaner::State object, or dies on error.
Returns the path of the file
Returns true if the state object is a directory
Returns the File::stat object for the file
Returns the permissions mode for the file/directory
Cleans the state object, by examining the new state of the file, and reverting it to the old one if possible.
remove method deletes a file for which we are holding a state.
The reason we provide a special method for this is that in some situations,
a file permissions may not allow us to remove it,
and thus we may need to correct it's permissions first.
