SYNOPSIS

    use PerlIO::via::Limit;
    PerlIO::via::Limit->length(20);
    # - or -
    use PerlIO::via::Limit length => 20;

DESCRIPTION

PerlIO::via::Limit implements a PerlIO layer that restricts length of stream.

CLASS METHODS

length

Limit length of stream. Default is undef that means unlimited.

sensitive

If set true value, an exception will be occurred when stream reaches limit of length. Default is false.

    use PerlIO::via::Limit sensitive => 1;

    open( my $in, "<:via(Limit)", $file ) or die;
    eval {
        while( <$in> ){
            # do something...
        }
    };if( $@ ){
        # "$in is trying to read exceeding the limit."
        warn "$@";
    }
    close $in or die;

Note that the $@ is a Exception::Class object.

BUGS

When the exception is thrown by sensitive option, the buffer for reading does not be filled.
