File::Stat - Get file status


Implements a File::Stat class, and an exportable `stat` function that will return a File::Stat object.

This object has methods that return the similarly named structure field name from the `stat(2)` function; namely: `dev`, `ino`, `mode`, `nlink`, `uid`, `gid`, `rdev`, `size`, `atime`, `mtime`, `ctime`, `blksize`, and `blocks`.

use File::Stat <stat>;

say => $?FILE).mode;

say stat($?FILE).uid


This module is uses underlying NQP ops, and will likely function incorrectly on non-POSIX systems.
