Test2::Tools::GenTemp - Tool for generating a populated temp directory.

This exports a tool that helps you make a temporary directory, nested directories and text files within.

use Test2::Tools::GenTemp qw/gen_temp/;

my $dir = gen_temp(
    a_file => "Contents of a_file",
    a_dir  => {
        'a_file' => 'Contents of a_dir/afile',
        a_nested_dir => { ... },
    },
    ...
);

done_testing;

All subs are exported by default.
gen_temp(file => 'content', subdir => [ sub_dir_file => 'content', ...], ...)
gen_temp(-tempdir => \@TEMPDIR_ARGS, file => 'content', subdir => [ sub_dir_file => 'content', ...], ...)
This will generate a new temporary directory with all the files and subdirs you specify, recursively. The initial temp directory is created using "File::Temp::tempdir()", you may pass arguments to tempdir using the "-tempdir => [...]" argument.
