For a minute there I thought you were on to something, but
alas it turned out to be an incorrect assumption. Here is
how I see it...

In the code Test module Test.pm 'makes a copy' of the STDOUT filehandle

$TESTOUT = *STDOUT{IO};
This has the same effect as below:
open( TESTOUT, ">&STDOUT" ) || die "dup failed";
In either case Perl comes back complaining that: "A file or directory in the path name does not exist at ...". Which means that the last parameter in the 5.6.1 version of open must point to a string with a path/filename. mgc

    OK then. I should have tested my suggestions. Anyway this does seem to work fine in Perl 5.6.1:

    use FileHandle; use Test; plan(tests => 3); ok("first"); { local $Test::TESTOUT; open $Test::TESTOUT, '>', "$ENV{TEMP}/zkTestRedirect.txt"; ok("second"); } ok("third");

      Thanks for the input. It seems thought, your example is still writing to a file. I am trying to trap STDOUT and redirect to a variable(memory).
