File::Modified module is intended as a simple method for programs to detect
whether configuration files (or modules they rely on) have changed. There are
currently two methods of change detection implemented, mtime and MD5.
The MD5 method will fall back to use timestamps if the Digest::MD5 module
cannot be loaded.
There is another module, File::Signature, which has many similar features,
so if this module doesn't do what you need, maybe File::Signature does. There
also is quite some overlap between the two modules, code wise.
