in reply to Find out if handle is seekable

 Posix::isatty (in words: is_a_tty) could be worth a look. It returns true, if the filehandle is associated with a terminal.

    Isatty won't return true on a pipe or a named pipe (fifo) or a socket, so it's not what I want. By the way, isn't the -t filetest operator the same as isatty?
