NAME

KinoSearch::Store::Folder - Abstract class representing a directory.

SYNOPSIS

    # abstract base class

DESCRIPTION

The archetypal implementation of Folder, FSFolder, is a single directory on the file system holding a collection of files. However, to allow alternative implementations such as RAMFolder, i/o and file manipulation are abstracted out rather than executed directly by KinoSearch's classes.

A "file" within an folder might be a real file on disk-- or it might be a ram file. Similarly, $folder->delete_file($filename) might delete a file from the file system, or a key-value pair from a hash, or something else.
