Changes for version 0.06

  • Improved speed considerably by using Perl's open() instead of the FileHandle module, and sysread() instead of <FH>. [patch by Perrin Harkins]
  • Data is now written to a temporary file using File::Temp, and then we rename() to the destination file, making the actual write an atomic operation. [patch by Perrin Harkins]
  • When creating filehandles, we now use if perl's version is less than 5.6, and just auto-vivify them otherwise.
