DirHandle(3) supply object methods for directory handles


use DirHandle;
$d = DirHandle->new(".");
if (defined $d) {
while (defined($_ = $d->read)) { something($_); }
while (defined($_ = $d->read)) { something_else($_); }
undef $d;


The "DirHandle" method provide an alternative interface to the opendir(), closedir(), readdir(), and rewinddir() functions.

The only objective benefit to using "DirHandle" is that it avoids namespace pollution by creating globs to hold directory handles.
