in reply to Best Way to Redirect STDERR to a Scalar

Tie STDERR to a scalar using any one of a number of modules. However if you really are trying to trap warnings then you may want to trap $SIG{__WARN__} or overide warn. Personally I would just trap $SIG{__WARN__} unless I knew that the code I was dealing with also used $SIG{__WARN__}.
