NAME

Config::Generator::File - Config::Generator file support

DESCRIPTION

This module eases the manipulation of files, directories and symbolic links.

The goal is to perform all the file related operations through this module so that there is a consistent handling of the Config::Generator variables: $NoAction, $RootDir and $Verbosity.

In addition, rpm compatible spec files snippets can be generated and the yacg command can use a "manifest" file to record which files it did create. This is required in order to be able to "clean out the junk", see yacg's --clean option.

make sure the given PATH is owned by the given GROUP

files_manifest()

return the list of all the files that have been manipulated by this module

return the list of all the files that have been manipulated by this module, in a format compatible with rpm's spec %files

handle_manifest(PATH, CLEAN)
