NAME

File::Properties::Media - Perl module representing properties of a media file

SYNOPSIS

  use File::Properties::Cache;
  use File::Properties::Media;

  my $fpc = File::Properties::Media->cache('cache.db');

  my $fpm = File::Properties::Media->new('/path/to/file', $fpc);
  print "Media mime type: " . $fpm->mmimetype . "\n";

ABSTRACT

  File::Properties::Media is a Perl module representing properties of
  a media file, in addition to the properties stored in
  File::Properties::Compressed from which it is derived.

DESCRIPTION

  File::Properties::Media is a Perl module representing properties of
  a media file, in addition to the properties stored in
  File::Properties::Compressed from which it is derived. These media
  file properties consist of mime type and file type as extracted by
  Image::Exiftool, the media type ('image', 'video', or 'audio'), the
  modification date, and a hash representing the full EXIF data. If a
  reference to a File::Properties::Cache object is specified in the
  constructor, access to the properties is via the cache.
new
  my $fpm = File::Properties::Media->new($path, $fpc);

Constructs a new File::Properties::Media object.

mmimetype
  print "Media mime type: " . $fpm->mmimetype . "\n";

Determine the media mime type of the represented file.

mfiletype
  print "Media file type: " . $fpm->mfiletype . "\n";

Determine the media file type of the represented file.

mediatype
  print "Media type: " . $fpm->mediatype . "\n";

Determine the media type (the initial part of mime type, e.g. 'image') of the represented file.

datemod
  print "Modification date: " . $fpm->datemod . "\n";

Determine the EXIF modification date.

exifhash
  my $exh = $fpm->exifhash;

Return a hash mapping EXIF tags names to their values.

ismedia
  print "Is a media file\n" if ($fpm->ismedia);

Determine whether the file is a media file.

string
  print $fpm->string . "\n";

Construct a string representing the object data.

_cacheinit
  $fpm->_cacheinit($fpc, $options_hash);

Initialise the regular file properties cache table in the cache referred to by the File::Properties::Cache reference argument.
