File::Fu is a Perl module that provides an method of manipulating directories
and files as objects, making use of operator overloading to allow for precise
composition fo paths and support for many built-in methods. It also provides
a way to create temporary directories and files.
The interface and style provided by this module are quite different than Perl
built-in functions or File::Spec. The syntax is concise and errors are checked
using exceptions, so you never need to check a return code.
