ExtUtils::Command

See the current Perl documentation for ExtUtils::Command.

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:


ExtUtils::Command - utilities to replace common UNIX commands in Makefiles etc.



  perl -MExtUtils::Command -e cat files... > destination
  perl -MExtUtils::Command -e mv source... destination
  perl -MExtUtils::Command -e cp source... destination
  perl -MExtUtils::Command -e touch files...
  perl -MExtUtils::Command -e
    

The module is used in Win32 port to replace common UNIX commands. Most commands are wrapers on generic modules File::Path and File::Basename.

cat

Concatenates all files mentioned on command line to STDOUT.

eqtime src dst

Sets modified time of dst to that of src

rm_f files....

Removes directories - recursively (even if readonly)

rm_f files....

Removes files (even if readonly)

touch files ...

Makes files exist, with current timestamp

mv source... destination

Moves source to destination. Multiple sources are allowed if destination is an existing directory.

cp source... destination

Copies source to destination. Multiple sources are allowed if destination is an existing directory.

chmod mode files...

Sets UNIX like permissions 'mode' on all the files.

mkpath directory...

Creates directory, including any parent directories.

test_f file

Tests if a file exists


BUGS

Should probably be Auto/Self loaded.
