Net::Hotline::FileListItem - File object used internally by Net::Hotline::Client


    use Net::Hotline::FileListItem;

    $file = new Net::Hotline::FileListItem;



Net::Hotline::FileListItem is a simple class for storing and retrieving file information, You should never have to create your own Net::Hotline::FileListItem objects when using Net::Hotline::Client. Getting and (to a lesser extent) setting attributes is all that should be necessary.



Creates a new Net::Hotline::FileListItem object with all attributes set to undef (or zero for numeric attributes).


All the Net::Hotline::FileListItem methods are simple attribute get/set routines. If given an argument, they set an attribute. In all cases, they return the current value of the attribute.
