DESCRIPTION This module provides a basic implementation of the XDG base directory specification as defined by the Free Desktop Organization (FDO). It supports all XDG directories except for the runtime directories, which require session management support in order to function.

CONSTRUCTOR $xdg = File::XDG->new( %args ) Returns a new instance of a "File::XDG" object. This must be called with an application name as the "name" argument.

Takes the following named arguments:

name => STRING
        Name of the application for which File::XDG is being used.

METHODS $xdg->data_home() Returns the user-specific data directory for the application.

$xdg->config_home() Returns the user-specific configuration directory for the application.

$xdg->cache_home() Returns the user-specific cache directory for the application.

$xdg->data_dirs() Returns the system data directories, not modified for the application. Per the specification, the returned string is :-delimited.

$xdg->config_dirs() Returns the system config directories, not modified for the application. Per the specification, the returned string is :-delimited.
