NAME

Finnigan::OLE2FAT -- a decoder for FAT Sector, a block allocation structure in OLE2

SYNOPSIS

  use Finnigan;
  my $fat = Finnigan::OLE2FAT->decode(\*INPUT, [$start, $count]);
  say join(' ', @{$fat->sect});

DESCRIPTION

This is an auxiliary decoder used by Finnigan::OLE2File; it is of no use on its own. It reads a specified number of 4-byte intergers into an array that is to be interpreted as a sector allocation table by the caller of the sect method.

METHODS

decode($stream, [$start, $count])

The constructor method. The start and count parameters are reserved for possible future use. Although they are not used at the moment (because Finnigan files do not use non-trivial FAT arrangements), these parameters must still be provided by the caller to avoid the unidentified value errors.

sect

Return the array containing the sector allocation table
