Data::CTable::Listing - CTable holding file and directory listings
## Call from a shell script: use Data::CTable::Listing; exit !Data::CTable::Listing->script();
This is an OO implementation of the guts of the "tls" perl script that comes with the Data::CTable distribution.
Please see Listing.pm for the full usage() message, or run the tls perl script with the --help option.

Main entry point for the "tls" or "tls.pl" script included with the Data::CTable distribution.
Instantiates a table object, gets and inserts file listing and other fields, processes user's arguments, and generates output.
Generates the file listing by interpreting the file-related command-line options.
Parses and processes the sorting, fieldlist, and output options, then calls the appropriate output method. Returns the scalar buffer reference returned by that method, if any; otherwise a ref to an empty buffer.
## Class-level utility method $Class->list_dir($Path, $Sep, $Cur, $Recurse, $NoTop, $NoChildren)
Platform-neutral recursive directory lister routine.
Caller must supply $Sep (platform's separator character) and $Cur (platform's string meaning "current directory").
If $Dir is empty/undef, then $Cur will be used as the starting point.
$Recurse means recurse to list subdirectories.
$NoTop means don't include $Dir itself in the listing.
$NoChildren means don't include children of $Dir. This option is ignored if $Recurse is true.
