NAME ^

PerlIO::via::GnuPG::Maybe - Layer to decrypt or pass-through unencrypted data on read

VERSION ^

This document describes version 0.004 of PerlIO::via::GnuPG::Maybe - released April 14, 2014 as part of PerlIO-via-GnuPG.

SYNOPSIS ^

    use PerlIO::via::GnuPG::Maybe;

    # cleartext.txt may or may not be encrypted;
    # returns the content or dies on any other error.
    open(my $fh, '<:via(GnuPG::Maybe)', 'cleartext.txt')
        or die "cannot open! $!";

    my @in = <$fh>; # or whatever...

DESCRIPTION ^

This is a PerlIO module to decrypt files transparently. If you try to open and read a file that is not encrypted, we will simply pass that file through unmolested. If you try to open and read one that is encrypted, it tries to decrypt it and pass it back along to you.

If you're looking for a stricter implementation, see PerlIO::via::GnuPG; it will die if the file is unencrypted.

It's pretty simple and does not support writing, but works.

...and if it doesn't, please file an issue :)
