File::Read mainly proposes functions for reading one or more files, with
different options.
This module was created to address a quite specific need: reading many files,
some as a normal user and others as root, and eventually do a little more
processing, all while being at the same time compatible with Perl 5.004.
File::Slurp addresses the first point, but not the others, hence the creation
of File::Read. If you don't need reading files as root or the post-processing
features, then it's faster to directly use File::Slurp.
