NAME

       File::ChangeNotify::Event - Class for file change events

VERSION

       version 0.31

SYNOPSIS

           my $watcher = File::ChangeNotify->instantiate_watcher(
               directories => [ '/my/path', '/my/other' ],
               filter      => qr/\.(?:pm|conf|yml)$/,
               exclude => [ 't', 'root', qr(/(?!\.)[^/]+$) ],
           );

           for my $event ( $watcher->new_events ) {
               print $event->path, ' - ', $event->type, "\n";
           }

DESCRIPTION

       This class provides information about a change to a specific file or directory.

METHODS

   File::ChangeNotify::Event->new(...)
       This method creates a new event. It accepts the following arguments:

       ·   path => $path

           The full path to the file or directory that changed.

       ·   type => $type

           The type of event. This must be one of "create", "modify", "delete", or "unknown".

   $event->path
       Returns the path of the changed file or directory.

   $event->type
       Returns the type of event.

   $event->has_attributes
       This returns true for modify events which include information about a path's attribute
       changes.

   $event->attributes
       If the event includes information about changes to a path's attributes, then this returns
       a two-element arrayref. Each element is in turn a hashref which will contain at least one
       of the following keys:

       ·   permissions

           The permissions mask for the path.

       ·   uid

           The user id that owns the path.

       ·   gid

           The group id that owns the path.

       Note that only keys which changed will be included.

   $event->has_content
       This returns true for modify events which include information about a file's content.

   $event->content
       This returns a two-element arrayref where the first element is the old content and the
       second is the new content.

       Note that this content is stored as bytes, not UTF-8. You will need to explicitly call
       "Encode::decode" on the content to make it UTF-8. This is done because there's no reason
       you couldn't use this feature with file's containing any sort of binary data.
