Discover which process has a file open, in pure Perl 6.
This is based on the similarly named module for Perl 5 available from CPAN.
Linux::Fuser provides a mechanism to determine which processes have a specified file open in a similar manner to the system utility fuser. There is an example program p6fuser in the examples directory which provides a Perl 6 implementation of that command.
Because this relies on the layout of the /proc filesystem specific to the Linux kernel it almost certainly will not work on any other operating system, though I would be delighted to hear about any where it does work.
Assuming you have a working perl6 installation you should be able to install this with zef :
zef install Linux::Fuser
Or if you have a local clone of the repository
zef install .
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.
This is free software.
