lib:FileCache

See the current Perl documentation for lib:FileCache.

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:


FileCache - keep more files open than the system permits



    cacheout $path;
    print $path @data;



The cacheout function will make sure that there's a filehandle open for writing available as the pathname you give it. It automatically closes and re-opens files if you exceed your system file descriptor maximum.


BUGS

sys/param.h lies with its NOFILE define on some systems, so you may have to set $FileCache::cacheout_maxopen yourself.
