App::Rsnapshot::Rotate - rotate snapshots
# rotate the 'alpha' interval App::Rsnapshot::Rotate::go(config => $config, interval => 'alpha');
Rotates the named interval in your backups
Takes two named parameters,
interval, being the name of the interval you want to rotate.
If the named interval is the first interval, then every foo.$number directory is renamed to foo.$number+1 except the highest numbered, which is renamde to _delete.$$ where $$ is the process ID, and foo.0 which is left alone.
If the named interval is *not* the first interval then it only rotates if previous.last exists. In that case, every foo.$number directory is renamed to foo.$number+1 except the highest numbered, which is renamde to _delete.$$, and previous.last is moved to foo.0.
