File::Update - update/modify/mutate a file only on change in contents.
use Path::Tiny qw/ path /; use File::Update qw/ write_on_change /; my $text = "Updated on " . strftime("%Y-%m-%d", time) . "\n"; write_on_change(path("dated-file.txt"), \$text);
Accepts a Path::Tiny like object and a reference to a string that contains the new contents. Writes the new content only if it is different from the existing one in the file.
Accepts a subroutine reference that accepts the reference to the existing content, can mutate it and if it returns a true value, the new text is written to the file.
Like write_on_change() but while using Path::Tiny's non-utf8 methods.
