Pinto::Role::FileFetcher - Something that fetches remote files


version 0.088


fetch(from => 'http://someplace' to => 'some/path')

Fetches the file located at from to the file located at to, if the file at from is newer than the file at to. If the intervening directories do not exist, they will be created for you. Returns a true value if the file has changed, returns false if it has not changed. Throws and exception if anything goes wrong.

The from argument can be either a URI or Path::Class::File object, or a string that represents either of those. The to attribute can be a Path::Class::File object or a string that represents one.

fetch_temporary(url => 'http://someplace')

Fetches the file located at the url to a file in a temporary directory. The file will have the same basename as the url. Returns a Path::Class::File that points to the new file. Throws and exception if anything goes wrong. Note the temporary directory and all its contents will be deleted when the process terminates.
