NAME

File::Details - File details in an object, stat, hash, etc..

SYNOPSIS

This module provides a class, File::Details that returns an object with stats and optionally other information about some file.

Instead creating hashs or even other classes to represent this, we simple can use File::Details. It also works like an stat that returns an object.

    use File::Details;

    my $details = File::Details->new( "filename" );

    my $size = $detais->size();  # same output as stat("filename")[7]

    # Getting the MD5 sum ( needs Digest::MD5 installed )

    my $hash = $details->hash();

METHODS

new

Creates a new object, on the filename received as parameter. It generates the stat info.

dev ino mode etc...

The stat elements are the same, so:

$details->blocks();

returns the actual number of system-specific blocks allocated on disk.

hash

Returns the MD5sum from the contents of the file. It calculates when the hash method is called for the first time. Another calls will return the same value calculated on first time.
