// The LogFileManager protocol is designed to allow you to control all aspects of your log files.
// The primary purpose of this is to allow you to do something with the log files after they have been rolled.
// Perhaps you want to compress them to save disk space.
// Perhaps you want to upload them to an FTP server.
// Perhaps you want to run some analytics on the file.
// A default LogFileManager is, of course, provided.
// The default LogFileManager simply deletes old log files according to the maximumNumberOfLogFiles property.
// This protocol provides various methods to fetch the list of log files.
// There are two variants: sorted and unsorted.
// If sorting is not necessary, the unsorted variant is obviously faster.
// The sorted variant will return an array sorted by when the log files were created,
// with the most recently created log file at index 0, and the oldest log file at the end of the array.
// You can fetch only the log file paths (full path including name), log file names (name only),
// or an array of DDLogFileInfo objects.
// The DDLogFileInfo class is documented below, and provides a handy wrapper that
// gives you easy access to various file attributes such as the creation date or the file size.

// DDLogFileInfo is a simple class that provides access to various file attributes.
// It provides good performance as it only fetches the information if requested,
// and it caches the information to prevent duplicate fetches.
// It was designed to provide quick snapshots of the current state of log files,
// and to help sort log files in an array.
// This class does not monitor the files, or update it's cached attribute values if the file changes on disk.
// This is not what the class was designed for.
// If you absolutely must get updated values,
// you can invoke the reset method which will clear the cache.

// So here's the situation.
// Extended attributes are perfect for what we're trying to do here (marking files as archived).
// This is exactly what extended attributes were designed for.
// But Apple screws us over on the simulator.
// Everytime you build-and-go, they copy the application into a new folder on the hard drive,
// and as part of the process they strip extended attributes from our log files.
// Normally, a copy of a file preserves extended attributes.
// So obviously Apple has gone to great lengths to piss us off.
// Thus we use a slightly different tactic for marking log files as archived in the simulator.
// That way it "just works" and there's no confusion when testing.
// The difference in method names is indicative of the difference in functionality.
// On the simulator we add an attribute by appending a filename extension.
// For example:
// log-ABC123.txt -> log-ABC123.archived.txt
