NAME
       validate - run many filetest checks on a tree

SYNOPSIS
           use File::CheckTree;

           $warnings += validate( q{
               /vmunix                 -e ⎪⎪ die
               /boot                   -e ⎪⎪ die
               /bin                    cd
                   csh                 -ex
                   csh                 !-ug
                   sh                  -ex
                   sh                  !-ug
               /usr                    -d ⎪⎪ warn "What happened to $file?\n"
           });


DESCRIPTION
       The validate() routine takes a single multiline string consisting of
       lines containing a filename plus a file test to try on it.  (The file
       test may also be a "cd", causing subsequent relative filenames to be
       interpreted relative to that directory.)  After the file test you may
       put ⎪⎪ die to make it a fatal error if the file test fails.  The
       default is ⎪⎪ warn.  The file test may optionally have a "!' prepended
       to test for the opposite condition.  If you do a cd and then list some
       relative filenames, you may want to indent them slightly for
       readability.  If you supply your own die() or warn() message, you can
       use $file to interpolate the filename.

       Filetests may be bunched:  "-rwx" tests for all of -r, -w, and -x.
       Only the first failed test of the bunch will produce a warning.

       The routine returns the number of warnings issued.
