Perl module for in-place editing of files

FileInplace is a Perl module intended to ease the common task of editing a file in-place. Inspired by variations of Perl’s -i option, this module is intended for somewhat more structured and reusable editing than command line Perl typically allows.

FileInplace endeavors to guarantee file integrity; that is, either all of the changes made will be saved to the file, or none will. It also offers functionality such as backup creation, automatic field splitting per-line, automatic chomping/unchomping, and aborting edits partially through without affecting the original file.
