NAME

Filesys::POSIX::Inode - Base class for filesystem inode objects

DESCRIPTION

Provides a base class for filesystem-type dependent inode objects. This class offers a number of methods used to help determine the nature of the inode by analyzing its attributes.

$inode->dir

Returns true if the current inode refers to a directory.

Returns true if the current inode is a symlink.

$inode->file

Returns true if the current inode is a regular file.

$inode->char

Returns true if the current inode is a character device.

$inode->block

Returns true if the current inode is a block device.

$inode->fifo

Returns true if the current inode is a FIFO.

$inode->sock

Returns true if the current inode refers to a socket.

$inode->major

If the current inode is a block or character device, return the major number. Otherwise, an EINVAL is thrown.

$inode->minor

If the current inode is a block or character device, return the minor number. Otherwise, an EINVAL is thrown.

$inode->perms

Returns the permissions bitfield value of the current inode's mode attribute.

$inode->readable

Returns true if the inode is readable by anyone.

$inode->writable

Returns true if the inode is writable by anyone.

$inode->executable

Returns true if the inode is executable by anyone.

$inode->setuid

Returns true if the inode has a setuid bit set.

$inode->setgid

Returns true if the inode has a setgid bit set.

$inode->update(@st)

Updates the current inode object with a list of values as returned by stat().

$inode->directory

If the current inode is a directory, return the directory object held by it. Otherwise, an ENOTDIR is thrown.

$inode->empty

Uses the above $inode->directory() call to obtain the directory for the current inode, and returns the result of $directory->empty().
