NAME
       DirHandle - supply object methods for directory handles

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

DESCRIPTION
       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.
