NAME

KinoSearch::Store::Folder - Abstract class representing a directory.

SYNOPSIS

    # Abstract base class.

DESCRIPTION

Abstract class representing a directory.

A "file" within a Folder might be a real file on disk -- or it might be a RAM buffer. Similarly, delete() might delete a file from the file system, or a key-value pair from a hash, or something else.

The archetypal implementation of Folder, FSFolder, represents a directory on the file system holding a collection of files.

INHERITANCE

KinoSearch::Store::Folder isa KinoSearch::Object::Obj.
