Bug#256018: ITP: libfile-chdir-perl -- A more sensible way to change directories

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : libfile-chdir-perl
  Version         : 0.06
  Upstream Author : Michael G Schwern <schwern@pobox.com>

  Description     : A more sensible way to change directories

 Perl's chdir() has the unfortunate problem of being very, very, very
 global. If any part of your program calls chdir() or if any library you
 use calls chdir(), it changes the current working directory for the
 whole program.
 This sucks.
 File::chdir gives you an alternative, $CWD and @CWD. These two
 variables combine all the power of chdir(), File::Spec and Cwd.

Note: this is being packaged as a dependancy of libmodule-depends-perl.
