Dir::Manifest::Key - a Dir::Manifest key.


version 0.6.1


Here is the primary use case: you have several long texts (and/or binary blobs) that you wish to load from the code (e.g: for the "want"/expected values of tests) and you wish to conventiently edit them, track them and maintain them. Using Dir::Manifest you can put each in a separate file in a directory, create a manifest file listing all valid filenames/key and then say something like my $text = $dir->text("deal24solution.txt", {lf => 1}). And hopefully it will be done securely and reliably.



The key as string.


A Path::Tiny object for reading from the file.
