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__}.

[ambrus]: Now it has five people instead of three, some sort of call number ticket system where people wait a lot for their food to get ready (it's the same kinds of grilled meat and fish on the same equipment, it won't actually fry slower),
[ambrus]: it's slow as hell, and the food costs significantly more.
[ambrus]: We no longer eat there.
LanX Everybody quotes it, some people read it, and a few people go by it
[ambrus]: LanX: why would I read it? isn't it a book for managers? I don't want to be a manager.
[ambrus]: I don't quote it either.
[erix]: it's really a software book, albeit about experiences from the 60s-80s. People haven't changed all that much though.
[erix]: a software project book, is probably more exact
[ambrus]: Yes, but I'm not managing software teams either.
[ambrus]: I'm not only not a restaurant manager, but also not a software manager.
