File::Open::NoCache::ReadOnly - Open a file and clear the cache afterward
Open a file that will be read once sequentially and not again, optimising the cache accordingly. One use case is building a large database from smaller files that are only read in once, Once the file has been used it's a waste of RAM to keep it in cache.
my $fh = File::Open::NoCache::ReadOnly->new('/etc/passwd');
my $fh2 = File::Open::NoCache::ReadOnly->new(filename => '/etc/group', fatal => 1);
Returns the file descriptor of the file
my $fd = $fh->fd();
my $line = <$fd>;
Shouldn't be needed as close happens automatically when there variable goes out of scope. However Perl isn't as good at reaping as it'd have you believe, so this is here to force it when you know you're finished with the object.
