Net::FTPServer::Handle - A generic Net::FTPServer file or directory handle.
$handle = Net::FTPServer::Handle->new ($ftps);
Create a new handle. You would normally call this from a derived class.
$rv = $handle->equals ($other_handle);
Decide if two handles refer to the same thing (file or directory).
($mode, $perms, $nlink, $user, $group, $size, $time) = $handle->status;
Return the file or directory status. The fields returned are:$mode Mode 'd' = directory, 'f' = file, and others as with the find(1) -type option. $perms Permissions Permissions in normal octal numeric format. $nlink Link count $user Username In printable format. $group Group name In printable format. $size Size File size in bytes. $time Time Time (usually mtime) in Unix time_t format.
In derived classes, some of this status information may well be synthesized, since virtual filesystems will often not contain information in a Unix-like format.
$name = $handle->pathname;
Return the full path of this file or directory. The path consists of all components separated by "/" characters.
If the object is a directory, then the pathname will have a "/" character at the end.
$name = $handle->filename;
Return the filename part of the path. If the file is a directory, then this function returns "".
$name = $handle->dirname;
Return the directory name part of the path. The directory name always has a trailing "/" character.
$rv = $handle->move ($dirh, $filename);
Move the current file (or directory) into directory
$dirhand call it
$filename. If the operation is successful, return 0, else return -1.
Underlying filesystems may impose limitations on moves: for example, it may not be possible to move a directory; it may not be possible to move a file to another directory; it may not be possible to move a file across filesystems.
$rv = $handle->delete;
Delete the current file or directory. If the delete command was successful, then return 0, else if there was an error return -1.
Different underlying file systems may impose restrictions on this command: for example, it may not be possible to delete directories, or only if they are empty.
This is a virtual function which is actually implemented in one of the subclasses.
