  Description     : Perl module to query a filehandle's capabilities

Perl's filehandles are implemented as a stack of layers, with the bottom-most
usually doing the actual IO and the higher ones doing buffering,
encoding/decoding or transformations. PerlIO::Layers allows you to query the
filehandle's properties concerning these layers.

The package will be maintained under the umbrella of the Debian Perl Group.

PerlIO::Layers is a dependency of File::Map
