File::Glob::Slurp - Turns <> into a slurp operator
$Id: Slurp.pm,v 0.2 2009/06/10 05:51:19 dankogai Exp dankogai $
Quick summary of what the module does.
Perhaps a little code snippet.
use File::Glob::Slurp; # slurps path/to/filename.ext my $home = <path/to/filename.ext>; # you can do this if you have LWP::Simple my $away = <http://example.com/>;
HACK #90 of PERL HACK proved that
<*glob*> operator is a pretty good place to implement micro-DSL. This module turns ancient
*glob* operator into modern
<> also acts as
my $content = <$path>;
Does not work. In such cases simply add whitespece like:
my $content = < $path >;
