Perl 6 access to path information provided by the xdg base directory specfication http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Specifications/basedir-spec/.
This is loosely based on the interface of python module pyxdg. But due to the differences between Python and Perl 6 it may do some things differently.
It provides a set of facilities for discovering the location configuration and data of applications.
I split this out from the XDG module as it has more general usefulness and no external dependencies.
Assuming you have a working Rakudo Perl 6 installation with panda installed you can install from a copy of the source directory:
panda install .
panda install XDG::BaseDirectory
Although I haven't tested, there is no reason that "zef" or some similarly capable package manager shouldn't work.
Suggestions/patches are welcomed via github at:
I'm not able to test on a wide variety of platforms so any help there would be appreciated.
Please see the LICENCE file in the distribution
