Manual Reference Pages - FILE::ATTRIBUTES::RECURSIVE (3)
File::Attributes::Recursive - Inherit file attributes from parent
Works like File::Attributes, but will recurse up the directory tree
until a matching attribute is found.
None, by default. Specify the functions youd like to use as
arguments to the module. :all means export everything.
get_attribute_recursively($file, [$top], CW$attribute)
Returns the value of attribute $attribute. If $top is
specified, then the search will terminate when the path no longer
contains $top. (i.e. if $file is /foo/bar/baz/quux and $top is
Returns a hash of key value pairs for all attributes that apply to
$file. Only the closest attributes are returned. Given:
/a (a = yes, foo = bar)
/a/b (b = yes, foo = baz)
/a/b/c (c = yes)
get_attributes_recursively(/a/b/c, /a) will return:
(a => yes, b => yes, c => yes, foo => baz).
The foo => bar is masked by the closer foo => baz.
Returns a list of attributes that are defined and apply to $file.
Like keys get_attributes_recursively($file, [$top]), but faster.
NOTABLY ABSENT FUNCTIONS
There are two possible ways for this function to behave either
recurse until the attribute is removed, or recurse to top, removing
the attribute at each level. The first doesnt make sense, and the
second is dangerous. If you need this function, write it for the
specific needs of your application; I think thats the safest thing to
(Note that rm refuses to rm .., so I think theres some
