( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I found that using either of the tied interfaces worked as you expect (both documented in the POD's for Perl-5.004 or later):

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use IO::Scalar; my $string; tie *OUT, 'IO::Scalar', \$string; select OUT; print "line 1\nline 2\n", "line 3\n"; select STDOUT; print "The string contains:\n$string\n"; ### OR this way: $string = ''; my $SH = IO::Scalar->new_tie(\$string); $SH->print("line 1\n"); # use the OO method print $SH "line 2\n"; # use it like a filehandle select $SH; # select it as default output handle print "line 3\n"; select STDOUT; print "The string contains:\n$string" __END__

    [shmem]: It's common for some vendors to have column names such as WRSTVG or some other such whizzbang, and another table where these names are mapped to something meaningful depending on how you look at the data
