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 $dirh and
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.
