File::Slurp::Tiny - A simple, sane and efficient file slurper [DISCOURAGED]
use File::Slurp::Tiny 'read_file';
my $content = read_file($filename);
This module is discouraged in favor of File::Slurper. While a useful experiment, it turned out to be both too similar to File::Slurp (still containing most problematic features of File::Slurp's interface) and yet not similar enough to be a true drop-in replacement.
Bugs will still be fixed, but new features will probably not be added.
This module provides functions for fast and correct slurping and spewing. All functions are optionally exported.
Reads file $filename into a scalar. By default it returns this scalar. Can optionally take these named arguments:
Set the layers to read the file with. The default will be something sensible on your platform.
Pass a reference to a scalar to read the file into, instead of returning it by value. This has performance benefits.
If set to true, read_file will return a reference to a scalar containing the file content.
Reads file $filename into a list/array. By default it returns this list. Can optionally take these named arguments:
Pass a reference to an array to read the lines into, instead of returning them by value. This has performance benefits.
chomp the lines.
Open $filename, and write $content to it. Can optionally take this named argument:
Set the layers to write the file with. The default will be something sensible on your platform.
Open dirname and return all entries except . and ... Can optionally take this named argument:
This will prepend $dir to the entries
A minimalistic abstraction not only around
