NAME

File::Spec::Memoized - Memoization of File::Spec to make it faster

VERSION

This document describes File::Spec::Memoized version 1.00.

SYNOPSIS

    # All you have to do is load this module.
    use File::Spec::Memoized;

    # Once this module is loaded, File::Spec features
    # will become faster.
    my $path = File::Spec->catfile('path', 'to', 'file.txt');

DESCRIPTION

File::Spec is used everywhere, but its performance is not so good because a lot of internal calls of canonpath() consumes CPU.

File::Spec::Memoized applies File::Spec with memoization technique (or data caching). Once you load this module, File::Spec methods will become significantly faster. Moreover, some modules that depend on File::Spec, e.g. Path::Class, could become faster.

This module adopts File::Spec methods, so you need no changes in your program. All you have to do is say use File::Spec::Memoized.

INTERFACE

File::Spec::Memoized->flush_cache()

Clears the cache and frees the memory used for the cache.
