in reply to Storing changing data within a script after the __DATA__ token

Yes, TheDamian and Brian Ingerson wrote Inline::Files, which allows you this and much more, like having several virtual files instead of just one.

    That reminds me of last years TPC. In one of TheDamian's sessions (I think it was 'The Conway Channel') he was talking about how he wrote Inline::Files. At this point Ingy stood up at the back of the hall and shouted something to the effect of "Excuse me, who wrote Inline::Files?". TheDamian made some form of 'off-the-cuff' remark and Ingy stormed out of the session. All harmless fun (I think...) and rather amusing :-)

      You missed the best part then: this was just a set-up. Damian and Brian spent the whole week pretending they had had an argument, just to prepare the last lightning talk, were Damian started explaining how he created Inline::Files, just for Brian to step in and argue that _he_ was the creator, and they spent 5 minutes yelling at each other... in Shakespearian English! That was really funny.
