       DirHandle - 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.
