NAME

File::Slurp::Tiny - A simple, sane and efficient file slurper [DISCOURAGED]

VERSION

version 0.004

SYNOPSIS

 use File::Slurp::Tiny 'read_file';
 my $content = read_file($filename);

DISCOURAGED

This module is discouraged in favor of File::Slurper. While a useful experiment, it turned out to be both too similar to File::Slurp (still containing most problematic features of File::Slurp's interface) and yet not similar enough to be a true drop-in replacement.

Bugs will still be fixed, but new features will probably not be added.

DESCRIPTION

This module provides functions for fast and correct slurping and spewing. All functions are optionally exported.

FUNCTIONS

read_file($filename, %options)

Reads file $filename into a scalar. By default it returns this scalar. Can optionally take these named arguments:

  • binmode

    Set the layers to read the file with. The default will be something sensible on your platform.

  • buf_ref

    Pass a reference to a scalar to read the file into, instead of returning it by value. This has performance benefits.

  • scalar_ref

    If set to true, read_file will return a reference to a scalar containing the file content.

read_lines($filename, %options)

Reads file $filename into a list/array. By default it returns this list. Can optionally take these named arguments:

  • binmode

    Set the layers to read the file with. The default will be something sensible on your platform.

  • array_ref

    Pass a reference to an array to read the lines into, instead of returning them by value. This has performance benefits.

  • chomp

    chomp the lines.

write_file($filename, $content, %options)

Open $filename, and write $content to it. Can optionally take this named argument:

  • binmode

    Set the layers to write the file with. The default will be something sensible on your platform.

read_dir($dirname, %options)

Open dirname and return all entries except . and ... Can optionally take this named argument:

  • prefix

    This will prepend $dir to the entries
