- $dirh = $fileh->dir;
Return the directory which contains this file.
- $fh = $fileh->open (["r"|"w"|"a"]);
Open a file handle (derived from "IO::Handle", see
IO::Handle(3)) in either read or write mode.
- ($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.
- $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 = $fileh->delete;
Delete the current file. If the delete command was
successful, then return 0, else if there was an error return -1.
- $link = $fileh->readlink;
If the current file is really a symbolic link, read the contents
of the link and return it.
