File-Info (1.02) **

This is a rather inappropriately named module, as it deals with caching file information rather than retrieving it. It would be better named something like File::Info::Cache

It also supports a uselessly limited number of file types (Unknown, JPEG, or PAR).

It stores a line count but not other 'wc' details like word count, longest line, etc.

It seems to have the ability to add these features, but examples are not provided. Some sections of the documentation are blank.

The Makefile.PL uses a non-standard home made scheme that is not usable by CPANPLUS (or presumably CPAN).
