NAME ^

Tie::DiskUsage - Tie disk usage to a hash

SYNOPSIS ^

 use Tie::DiskUsage;

 tie %usage, 'Tie::DiskUsage', '/var', '-h';
 print $usage{'/var/log'};
 untie %usage;

DESCRIPTION ^

Tie::DiskUsage ties the disk usage, which is extracted from the output of du(1), to a hash. If the path to perform the du command on is undef, the current working directory will be examined; options to du may be passed at the end of the tie invocation with a string provided per option.

By default, the location of the du command is assumed to be at /usr/bin/du; if du cannot be found there, File::Which will attempt to gather its real location.

The default path to du may be overridden by setting the global $Tie::DiskUsage::DU_BIN (usually not needed due to File::Which's automatic search for du).

BUGS & CAVEATS ^

Processing output of du(1) requires that each output line is ended by a newline.
