Branch: pkgsrc-2014Q1, Version: 0.051, Package name: p5-Path-Tiny-0.051, Maintainer: pkgsrc-p5-people

This module attempts to provide a small, fast utility for working with
file paths. It is friendlier to use than File::Spec and provides easy
access to functions from several other core file handling modules.

It doesn't attempt to be as full-featured as IO::All or Path::Class,
nor does it try to work for anything except Unix-like and Win32 platforms.
Even then, it might break if you try something particularly obscure or
tortuous. (Quick! What does this mean: ///../../..//./././a//b/.././c/././?
And how does it differ on Win32?)

All paths are forced to have Unix-style forward slashes. Stringifying the
object gives you back the path (after some clean up).

File input/output methods flock handles before reading or writing, as

The *_utf8 methods (slurp_utf8, lines_utf8, etc.) operate in raw mode
without CRLF translation. Installing Unicode::UTF8 0.58 or later will speed
up several of them and is highly recommended.

It uses autodie internally, so most failures will be thrown as exceptions.
