Object::Signature::File - Extended signature API for storing objects in file
Whereas the basic Object::Signature class provides for only a raw
cryptographic signature, <B>Object::Signature::FileB> extends the
signature method to add specialised information for objects that want
some control over how they are stored as files.
For example, some objects may want the cached object to have a matching
file extension (for example a gif image) so that web-accessible cache
path could be used in a web page.
The image would then be sent out to the browser with the correct mime
The signature_ext method indicates the preferable file extension
for the content of the object, if applicable.
If the method returns a string, it indicates the object should be stored
in a file with a specific extension.
If the method returns a null string, it indicates that the file should
be stored with no extension.
If the method return undef (the default value), it indicates no
preference for the extention the file.
This <B>signature_nameB> method is the least-useful part of this extended
API, and is rarely used. It is included mostly for completeness.
If the method returns a string, it indicates the name part of a file
name that the object should be stored in, if possible.
If the method return a null string, it explicitly indicates there is
no file name or a file name is not possible.
If the method returns undef (the default value), it indicates no
preference for the name of the file.
