then you don't know file::slurp at all. it is far from a wrapper. it is
the fastest way to slurp files (see the benchmark script included in the
tarball). it also has many return variations and useful options that are
not duplicated in file::spec or other modules. please learn about the
module before you make such casual comments.

and that uses file::slurp internally for its slurping and it loads tons
of cpan for you (file::slurp has no dependencies).
