_SCR_ [path path path...] [options]

_SCR_ is a command-line tool similar to the Unix "ls" (directory
listing) command.  It should run on any platform that has perl.

It uses Data::CTable (Data::CTable::Listing sublcass) and
Data::ShowTable to build in memory a table of information about
specified files and directories and then output it to the console or a
file.

Each command line path must be either a file or directory to be
included in the listing.

If no paths are specified at all, the current directory is assumed.

For each path argument that is a directory, an entry for each file in
that directory will also be included in the listing unless the
--nochildren option is specified.  (You may suppress the top-level
item itself by specifying --notop).  Other than the default single
level of children listed, recursion is not done unless you specify
--recurse.

Options may appear in any order, before, after, or intermixed with the
path arguments.  See below for options.

In addition to the Path field which contains the absolute or relative
path name of each listed item, _SCR_ also derives a number of
additional fields which you may include in the listing.

Available fields are:

    Main path field:

	Path         Absolute or relative path of specified item

    Fields from stat($Path) (see --fields, --all, or --info):
             
	Device   0 dev     device number of filesystem                                        
	INode    1 ino     inode number                                                       
	Mode     2 mode    file mode  (type and permissions)                                  
	NLink    3 nlink   number of (hard) links to the file                                 
	UID      4 uid     numeric user ID of file's owner                                    
	GID      5 gid     numeric group ID of file's owner                                   
	RDev     6 rdev    the device identifier (special files only)                         
	Size     7 size    total size of file, in bytes                                       
	ATime    8 atime   last access time in seconds since the epoch                        
	MTime    9 mtime   last modify time in seconds since the epoch                        
	CTime   10 ctime   inode change time (NOT creation time)
	BlkSize 11 blksize preferred block size for file system I/O                           
	Blocks  12 blocks  actual number of blocks allocated                                  

    Fields from localtime($MTime) (see --fields, --all, or --localtime):
                                  (see man ctime or struct tm):

	Sec   0 tm_sec   The number of seconds after the minute, normally in 
	                 the range 0 to 59, but can be up to 61 to allow for
	                 leap seconds.
	Min   1 tm_min   The number of minutes after the hour, in the range 0 to 59.
	Hour  2 tm_hour  The number of hours past midnight, in the range 0 to 23.  
	Day   3 tm_mday  The day of the month, in the range 1 to 31.               
	TMon  4 tm_mon   The number of months since January, in the range 0 to 11. 
	TYear 5 tm_year  The number of years since 1900 (range   69 to  138)
	WDay  6 tm_wday  The number of days since Sunday, in the range 0 to 6.     
	YDay  7 tm_yday  The number of days since January 1, in the range 0 to 365.
	IsDST 8 tm_isdst A flag that indicates whether daylight saving
	                 time is in effect at the time described.  The
	                 value is positive if daylight saving time is in
	                 effect, zero if it is not, and negative if the
	                 information is not available.

    Fields from File::Basename (see --fields, --all, or --base):

	Dir        Directory component of Path
	Base       Base component of file name (without the Ext)
	Ext        Extension (any non-. characters after last . plus the . itself)

    Other derived fields (see --fields, --all, or --derived):

	File       Filename component of Path (= Base + Ext)
	Type       File or directory

	Perms      Permissions (from Mode), specified as an octal string  
	Owner      Unix owner name: getpwuid(UID) (empty on Win)                         
	Group      Unix owner name: getgrgid(GID) (empty on Win)                       

	Mon        TMon  + 1                          (range    1 to   12)
	Year       TYear + 1900                       (range 1900 to 2038)

	RTime      ModTime as human-readable string (localtime(MTIME)."") 
	Stamp      String-sortable semi-numeric time stamp (based on MTIME)   

Field names are always built and output using mixed-case as indicated.

However, case is ignored by the --fields or --sort options (you may
specify the field names in all lower-case, for example).  You may also
specify any shorter form of any field name as long as it is not
ambiguous.  (For example "fi" for File or "pa" for Path.)

Available command-line options are:

    Miscellaneous
    -------------		

	Ignore all other options and print this help message instead. 

	--help
	-h

	Don't turn off progress() calls in the table.

	--verbose
	-v


    Controlling files (rows) included in listing
    --------------------------------------------

	Don't include children of specified directories.

	--nochildren
	--nochild
	--noc

	Don't list specified directories themselves (but do list their
	children unless --noc).

	--notop
	--not

	Recursively include all sub-directories in listings (overrides
	--nochildren).

	--recurse
	-r

	Restrict listing to only directories (d) or files (f).

	--type=d
	-ty=d

	--type=f
	-ty=f


    Setting which fields (columns) to include in output
    ---------------------------------------------------

	Use the options below to specify the fields to be listed in the
	output table, in order.  If no fields are specified, the following
	fields will be used:

	Path Owner Group Size RTime  (except Path when --nopath)

	--fields f1,f2
	--field f1 --field f2
	-f=f1,f2,f3
	-f="f1 f2 f3"

	Force all available fields to be included in output (overrides --fields).

	--all
	-a

	Force all localtime-derived fields to be included in output (adds
	any not yet specified in --fields).

	--localtime
	-l

	Force all stat-derived fields to be included in output (adds
	any not yet specified in --fields).

	--info
	-i

	Force all File::Basename-derived fields to be included in output
	(adds any not yet specified in --fields).

	--base
	-b

	Force all other derived fields to be included in output.

	--derived
	-de

	Don't automatically put the Path as first field in output (but do
	include it if no other fields are specified).

	--nopath
	--nop


    Sort order
    ----------

	Specify ordered list of field names to use to sort and sub-sort
	the output.  

	--sort f1 --sort f2
	--sort f1,f2
	-s=f1,f2,f3
	-s="f1 f2 f3"

	If none are specified, the table is sorted ascending by Path.

	In fact, Path is always the LAST field in the sort order, whether
	you specify it explicity or not.  This guarantees that the sort
	order is always unambiguous since no two items will have the same
	Path.

	In the sort order, each field will be sorted ascending unless a
	"+" is appended to its name (mnemonic: + sorts highest items
	first).  For example:

	-s=Size+
	-s=WDay+,Size+

    Controlling the output method and its arguments
    --------------------------------------------

	Specify name of method Data::CTable::Listing method to call in
	order to output data, and any arguments to that method, separated
	by commas, spaces or by multiple --output or -o options, .

	Default is the "format" method, which prints a table using the
	Data::ShowTable, which of course must be installed to work.  

	The write() method is another alternative.  With no arguments, it
	will write to STDOUT (and may be redirected to a file or other
	script). With a single argument, it will write to a file by that
	name.  Multiple arguments are processed as named-parameter
	arguments; and any documented named-parameter option to
	Data::CTable::write() may be specified this way.

	Note: the default delimiter character for write() is comma.  To
	get tab-delimited output, see the --tabs option below.

	--output=write
	-o=write,foo.txt
	-o=write,_FileName,foo.txt,_LineEnding,mac,HeaderRow,0

	Shortcut to specify using the write method to write to STDOUT.
	This is equivalent to "-o=write".

	--write
	-w		

	Specify tab-delimited output.  This forces the "write" method
	instead of the "format" method to be used to output the table.

	This is equivalent to specifying '--output=write,_FDelimiter,"\t"'
	except it's briefer and easier to get your shell script to accept
	it.

	--tabs
	-ta		

	Suppress a header row showing field names.  This forces the
	"write" method instead of the "format" method to be used to output
	the table.

	This is equivalent to specifying '--output=write,_HeaderRow,0'.

	--noheader
	-noh

	Specify line-endings.  Endings by default will be whatever "\n" is
	on the current system.  To force them, specify one of the
	following options.  These options force the "write" method and are
	equivalent to specifying equivalent to specifying
	'--output=write,_LineEnding,mac', ...unix, ...dos, etc.

	--mac
	-m
	--unix
	-u
	--dos
	-do

This script is part of the Data::CTable distribution.

Most of the script's work is done by the subclassed CTable object in
Data::CTable::Lister.

You can use or subclass Data::CTable::Lister directly if you'd like to
use any aspect of this script's functionality in your own perl tools.

See that module for detailed documentation of this script's behavior,
including the usage() message that prints when --help is requested.

	## Class-level utility method
	$Class->list_dir($Path, $Sep, $Cur, $Recurse, $NoTop, $NoChildren)

Platform-neutral recursive directory lister routine.  

Caller must supply $Sep (platform's separator character) and $Cur
(platform's string meaning "current directory").

If $Dir is empty/undef, then $Cur will be used as the starting point.

$Recurse means recurse to list subdirectories.

$NoTop means don't include $Dir itself in the listing.

$NoChildren means don't include children of $Dir.  This option is
ignored if $Recurse is true.
