Howdy peeps, this was originally going to be a private email to module author tye, but alas the address in my copy of Win32API::File is outdated. And perhaps the wider Perl community can help/learn from this.
I have used Win32API::File to get
out of a few tight spots in the last couple years. Alas I have now
gotten into a spot that it should help me with, but I am coming up
short. I'm unable to set the HANDLE_FLAG_PROTECT_FROM_CLOSE flag and I'm not
sure if it is a problem with the module, or with my environment.
Here's sample code:
use Win32API::File qw(:Func :HANDLE_FLAG_);
open my $fh,">&2";
my $os_handle=GetOsFHandle($fh) or die "Can't GetOSFHandle: $^E,\nstop
GetHandleInformation($os_handle, my $flags);
print "flags was=$flags\n";
$flags |= HANDLE_FLAG_INHERIT|HANDLE_FLAG_PROTECT_FROM_CLOSE;
print "Trying for flags=$flags\n";
SetHandleInformation($os_handle, $flags, $flags) or die "Can't
GetHandleInformation($os_handle, my $newflags);
print "flags now=$newflags\n";
Trying for flags=3
It's the last line "flags now=1" that indicates to me that
SetHandleInformation isn't actually setting
