8.101. File::Path

Creates and deletes multiple directories with specified permissions. Exports two methods.

mkpath

mkpath (path, bool, perm)

Creates a directory path and returns a list of all directories created. Takes the following arguments:

path
Name of the path or reference to a list of paths to create.

bool
Boolean. If true, mkpath prints the name of each directory as it is created. Default is false.

perm
Numeric mode indicating the permissions to use when creating the directories. Default is 0777.

rmtree

rmtree (root, prt, skip)

Deletes subtrees from the directory structure, returning the number of files successfully deleted. Symbolic links are treated as ordinary files. Takes the following arguments:

root
Root of the subtree to delete or reference to a list of roots. The roots, and all files and directories below each root, are deleted.

prt
Boolean. If true, rmtree prints a message for each file, with the name of the file and whether it's using rmdir or unlink to remove it (or if it's skipping the file). Default is false.

skip
Boolean. If true, rmtree skips any files to which you do not have delete access (under VMS) or write access (under other operating systems). Default is false.
