Module Version: v0.0.7   Source   Latest Release: File-Fu-v0.0.8

NAME ^

File::Fu::File - a filename object

SYNOPSIS ^

  use File::Fu;

  my $file = File::Fu->file("path/to/file");
  $file %= '.extension';
  $file->e and warn "$file exists";

  $file->l and warn "$file is a link to ", $file->readlink;

Constructor ^

new

  my $file = File::Fu::File->new($path);

  my $file = File::Fu::File->new(@path);

new_direct

  my $file = File::Fu::File->new_direct(
    dir => $dir_obj,
    file => $name
  );

Class Constants ^

dir_class

Return the corresponding dir class for this file object.

  my $dc = $class->dir_class;

is_dir

Always false for a file.

is_file

Always true for a file.

Parts ^

basename

Returns a new object representing only the file part of the name.

  my $obj = $file->basename;

Methods ^

stringify

  my $string = $file->stringify;

append

Append a string only to the filename part.

  $file->append('.gz');

  $file %= '.gz';

(Yeah... I tried to use .=, but overloading hates me.)

map

  $file->map(sub {...});

  $file &= sub {...};

absolute

Get an absolute name (without checking the filesystem.)

  my $abs = $file->absolute;

absolutely

Get an absolute name (resolved on the filesytem.)

  my $abs = $file->absolutely;

Doing stuff ^

open

Open the file with $mode ('<', 'r', '>', 'w', etc) -- see IO::File.

  my $fh = $file->open($mode, $permissions);

Throws an error if anything goes wrong or if the resulting filehandle happens to be a directory.

piped_open

Opens a read pipe. The file is appended to @command.

  my $fh = $file->piped_open(@command);

touch

Update the timestamp of a file (or create it.)

  $file->touch;

link

  my $link = $file->link($name);

symlink

  my $link = $file->symlink($linkname);

Note that symlinks are relative to where they live.

  my $dir = File::Fu->dir("foo");
  my $file = $dir+'file';
  # $file->symlink($dir+'link'); is a broken link
  my $link = $file->basename->symlink($dir+'link');

unlink

  $file->unlink;

readlink

  my $to = $file->readlink;

read

Read the entire file into memory (or swap!)

  my @lines = $file->read;

  my $file = $file->read;

If File::Slurp is available, options to read_file will be passed along. See "read_file" in File::Slurp.

write

Write the file's contents.

  $file->write($content);

If File::Slurp is available, $content may be either a scalar, scalar ref, or array ref.

  $file->write($content, %args);

copy

  $file->copy($dest);
