File::IconTheme - Find icon directories

version 0.09

use File::IconTheme qw(xdg_icon_theme_search_dirs);
print join "\n", xdg_icon_theme_search_dirs;

This module can be used to find directories as specified by the Icon Theme Specification. Currently only a tiny (but most useful) part of the specification is implemented.

In case you want to store an icon theme, use the directory returned by:

use File::BaseDir qw(data_dirs);
print scalar data_dirs('icons');

Can be exported on request.

my @dirs = xdg_icon_theme_search_dir;

Returns a list of the base directories of icon themes.
