Filesys::Virtual::Plain - A Plain virtual filesystem
my $fs = Filesys::Virtual::Plain->new();
print foreach ($fs->list('/'));
This module is used by other modules to provide a pluggable filesystem.
You can pass the initial cwd, root_path, and home_path as a hash.
Logs in a user. Returns 0 on failure. If $username is 'anonymous' then it will try to login as 'ftp' with no password. If $become is defined then it will try to change ownership of the process to the uid/gid of the logged in user. BEWARE of the consequences of using $become. login() also sets the uid, gid, home, gids, home_path, and chdir to the users'.
Gets or sets the current directory, assumes / if blank. This is used in conjunction with the root_path for file operations. No actual change directory takes place.
Get or set the root path. All file paths are off this and cwd For example:
The size command would get the size for file /home/ftp/test/testfile.txt not /test/testfile.txt
chmod's a file.
Gets the modification time of a file in YYYYMMDDHHMMSS format.
Gets the size of a file in bytes.
Deletes a file, returns 1 or 0 on success or failure.
Changes the cwd to a new path from root_path. Returns undef on failure or the new path on success.
Creats a directory with $mode (defaults to 0755) and chown()'s the directory with the uid and gid. The return value is from mkdir().
Deletes a directory or file if -d test fails. Returns 1 on success or 0 on failure.
Returns an array of the files in a directory.
Returns an array of the files in ls format.
Does a normal stat() on a file or directory
Perform a perl type test on a file and returns the results.
For example to perform a -d on a directory.
See filetests in perlfunc (commandline: perldoc perlfunc)
Opens a file with IO::File. Params are passed to open() of IO::File. It returns the file handle on success or undef on failure. This could be technically be used for any sort of open operation. See IO::File's open method.
Performs a $fh->close()
Performs an $fh->open(">$file") or $fh->open(">>$file") if $append is defined. Returns the filehandle on success or undef on failure.
Performs a $fh->seek($pos, $wence). See IO::Seekable.
Performs a utime() on the file(s). It changes the access time and mod time of those files.
