in reply to Override tempdir DESTROY

Subclass File::Temp::Dir and override the DESTROY method. This is somewhat complicated by the fact that File::Temp::Dir doesn't have a traditional constructor.

package My::File::Temp::Dir; use File::Temp (); our @ISA = qw(File::Temp::Dir); sub new { my $class = shift; my $self = File::Temp->newdir(@_); bless $self, $class; } sub DESTROY { my $tempdir = shift; ...; # do stuff $tempdir->SUPER::DESTROY(@_); } 1;

Then, stop using the tempdir function and use My::File::Temp::Dir->new instead.

perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'
