Slurp - Slurp entire files into variables
Apparently the author never bothered to even search on the word "slurp" on cpan. If he had, he would have found File::Slurp which has been around for quite some time, iirc. I don't see anything in the docs to indicate it does anything different.
Is CPAN getting to the point where we need a "redundancy avoidance committee"?
