in thread STDERR going to string

But then, why after redirecting STDERR, fileno(STDERR) is still 2? is it cheating?

And why the Inline::C does example does not work even when the perlio.h redefines C stderr to point to some variable inside the perl runtime?

    The source of the problem *is* perlIO. Not the underlying Windows CRT calls. With the PerlIO #defines in place, you cannot even do:

    fprintf( stderr, ... );

    Without perl crashing in a heap around your ears.

    However, if in your XS code, you #undef stderr to bypass the ridiculous PerlIO redefinitions, things begin to work. But you also have to defeat all the other pointless PerlIO redefinitions.

    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    The start of some sanity?

    How about you tell me?

    If I were curious I would ask perl5-porters :)
