Description : change directory temporarily for a limited scope
File::pushd does a temporary chdir that is easily and automatically
reverted, similar to pushd in some Unix command shells. It works by
creating an object that caches the original working directory. When
the object is destroyed, the destructor calls chdir to revert to the
original working directory. By storing the object in a lexical
variable with a limited scope, this happens automatically at the end
of the scope.
This is very handy when working with temporary directories for tasks
like testing; a function is provided to streamline getting a temporary
directory from File::Temp.
For convenience, the object stringifies as the canonical form of the
absolute pathname of the directory entered.
The package is a dependency of liborlite-migrate-perl (ITP#511437),
which in turn is dependency of Padre 0.25.
Maintenance shall commence via the Debian Perl Group ways.
