NAME

File::Stat::OO - OO interface for accessing file status attributes

VERSION

Version 0.03

SYNOPSIS

    use File::Stat::OO;

    my $foo = File::Stat::OO->new({file => '/etc/password'});
    $foo->stat; # stat file specified at instantiation time
    print $foo->size;
    print $foo->mtime; # modification time in epoch seconds

or inflate epoch seconds into DateTime objects

    my $foo = File::Stat::OO->new();
    $foo->use_datetime(1);

    # Or the two lines above can be combined as
    #   my $foo = File::Stat::OO->new({use_datetime => 1});

    $foo->stat('/etc/password'); # pass file name to the stat method
    print $foo->mtime; # returns DateTime object not an epoch
    print $foo->mtime->epoch; # epoch seconds
