File::Attributes::Recursive - Inherit file attributes from parent directories.
File::Attributes, but will recurse up the directory tree until a matching attribute is found.
None, by default. Specify the functions you'd like to use as arguments to the module.
:all means export everything.
Returns the value of attribute
$top is specified, then the search will terminate when the path no longer contains
$top. (i.e. if
Returns a hash of key value pairs for all attributes that apply to
$file. Only the closest attributes are returned. Given:
/a (a = yes, foo = bar) /a/b (b = yes, foo = baz) /a/b/c (c = yes)
get_attributes_recursively('/a/b/c', '/a') will return:
(a => yes, b => yes, c => yes, foo => baz).
foo => bar is masked by the "closer"
foo => baz.
Returns a list of attributes that are defined and apply to
keys get_attributes_recursively($file, [$top]), but faster.
There are two possible ways for this function to behave -- either recurse until the attribute is removed, or recurse to
top, removing the attribute at each level. The first doesn't make sense, and the second is dangerous. If you need this function, write it for the specific needs of your application; I think that's the safest thing to do.
rm refuses to
rm .., so I think there's some precedent here.)
