in reply to Who needs files? Net::FTP::Scalar (code)

Are you sick and tired of writing to a file with Net::FTP? Have you thought "gee, it would be nice if graham had made it possible for me to write to a scalar?"

Um, I did. $ftp->retr($filename) will return a tied filehandle. So you can read from that in the same way you would read from a file.

    In the spirit of TMTOWTDI, though, why can't I pass Net::FTP a tied filehandle (say, an IO::Scalar), and have the data read that way?

    Update: Ok, done :)

      Because nobody has sent a patch :)
