A collection of TeX::AutoTeX::File objects that includes context and caching information.


new( log => $logobject, dir => $directory)

Creates a new Fileset object. Call as AutoTex::Fileset->new(log => $log, dir => $directory) where $log is a reference to an TeX::AutoTeX::Log object and $directory is the top level directory of the material to be processed.

Instance data:

cache - Used to cache existing File objects, will be used by the Fileset::new_File method to return reference to an existing File object if one already exists. Otherwise call will be passed on to File::new.
log - reference to an TeX::AutoTeX::Log object
dir - top level directory in which the collection of files resides
local_hyper_transform - an instance of a Filter class with a filter method used to provide a local line-by-line transformation of TeX source files executed after standard transformations to automatically use hypertex
override - possible overrides of file types


Get a File object for the current $filename within this Fileset context. returns a reference to a cached File object if it is already known.
