DataStore::CAS::FS::DirCodec::Minimal - Directory representation with minimal metadata
This class packs a directory as a list of [type, hash, filename], which is very efficient, but omits metadata that you often would want in a backup.
This is primarily intended for making small frequent backups inbetween more thorough nightly backups.
$serialized= $class->encode( \@entries, \%metadata )
Serialize the given entries into a scalar.
Serialize the bare minimum fields of each entry. Each entry will have 3 pieces of data saved: type, name, and ref.
%metadatais encoded using JSON, which isn't very compact, but if you really want a minimal encoding you shouldn't supply metadata anyway.
$dir= $class->decode( %params )
encode, to create a Dir object.
See DirCodec->load for details on
