       File::Slurper - A simple, sane and efficient module to slurp a file


       version 0.012


        use File::Slurper 'read_text';
        my $content = read_text($filename);


       This module provides functions for fast and correct slurping and spewing. All functions
       are optionally exported. All functions throw exceptions on errors, write functions don't
       return any meaningful value.


   read_text($filename, $encoding, $crlf)
       Reads file $filename into a scalar and decodes it from $encoding (which defaults to
       UTF-8). If $crlf is true, crlf translation is performed. The default for this argument is
       off. The special value 'auto' will set it to a platform specific default value.

       Reads file $filename into a scalar without any decoding or transformation.

   read_lines($filename, $encoding, $crlf, $skip_chomp)
       Reads file $filename into a list/array line-by-line, after decoding from $encoding,
       optional crlf translation and chomping.

   write_text($filename, $content, $encoding, $crlf)
       Writes $content to file $filename, encoding it to $encoding (which defaults to UTF-8). It
       can also take a "crlf" argument that works exactly as in read_text.

   write_binary($filename, $content)
       Writes $content to file $filename as binary data.

       Open "dirname" and return all entries except "." and "..".


       This module tries to make it as easy as possible to read and write files correctly and
       fast. The most correct way of doing this is not always obvious (e.g. #83126
       <>), and just as often the most
       obvious correct way is not the fastest correct way. This module hides away all such
       complications behind an easy intuitive interface.


       This module has an optional dependency on PerlIO::utf8_strict. Installing this will make
       UTF-8 encoded IO significantly faster, but should not otherwise affect the operation of
       this module. This may change into a dependency on the related Unicode::UTF8 in the future.


       ·   Path::Tiny

           A minimalistic abstraction handling not only IO but also paths.

       ·   IO::All

           An attempt to expose as many IO related features as possible via a single API.

       ·   File::Slurp

           This is a previous generation file slurping module. It has a number of issues, as
           described here <

       ·   File::Slurp::Tiny

           This was my previous attempt at a better file slurping module. It's mostly (but not
           entirely) a drop-in replacement for File::Slurp, which is both a feature (easy
           conversion) and a bug (interface issues).
