Bug#1030397: ITP: libio-file-withfilename-perl -- filehandles that know their origin

Package: wnpp
Owner: Mason James <mtj@kohaaloha.com>
Severity: wishlist
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-devel@lists.debian.org, debian-perl@lists.debian.org

* Package name    : libio-file-withfilename-perl
  Version         : 0.01
  Upstream Author : Ivan Fomichev <ifomichev@cpan.org>
* URL             : https://metacpan.org/release/IO-File-WithFilename
* License         : Artistic or GPL-1+
  Programming Lang: Perl
  Description     : filehandles that know their origin

IO::File::WithFilename does everything that IO::File does, but implements
filename method, that File::Temp objects have. It lets you write the code
that is ignorant of what classes of objects it works with.

If you want to check if it is safe to call filename method, you are
recommended to call can method rather than to check an object's inheritance:

  print $obj->filename, "\n" if eval { $obj->can('filename') };

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