=head1 NAME
use Chj::xopendir;
my $dir= xopendir "/foo";
while (defined(my $item=$dir->read)) {
print $item;
} # $dir is closed automatically (issuing a warning on error)
Something like IO::Dir, but more lightweight (IO::Dir takes about 0.3 seconds
to load on my laptop, whereas this module takes less than 30ms), and with
functions/methods that throw (currently untyped) exceptions on error.
=over 4
=item xopendir ("path")
Open the given dir or croak on errors. Returns an anonymous symbol
blessed into Chj::xopendir::dir, which can be used both as object
or filehandle (more correctly: anonymous glob) (? always? Perl is a
bit complicated when handling filehandles in indirect object notation).
=item perhaps_opendir ($path)
Try to open given directory path, if successful return the filehandle,
otherwise return () and leave $! set.
=item perhaps_xopendir ($path)
Same as perhaps_opendir but throw exception on all errors except for
=over 4
=item new ("path")
Same as xopendir, but in object oriented notation (overridable).
=over 4
=item read
=item xread
Read one dir entry in scalar context, all entries in list context.
xread croaks if it detects an error, though it's quite unsure if
that really works (see also module source).
=item nread
=item xnread
Same as read/xread but discard "." and ".." entries.
=item xclose
Close dirhandle and croak on error. (If not called before descruction
of the object, the filehandle is closed anyway, but only a warning
is issued upon errors in that case.)
