It makes managing files so much easier. Just opening them, reading them into a scalar or array, printing them out.
Of course it STARTED out as a true ::Tiny module but as seems to happen with those it is now not so Tiny anymore, it even has support for stuff on platforms as AIX and such.
I wrote a platform for managing Video on Demand files and had to load and process a whole lot of XML metadata files, images, and videos. I used this module extensively to crawl directories, read files and so on. It has helped me a lot writing code faster while also making my code much easier to read and maintain. Thanks a LOT for this module!
