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

this:

close STDOUT; close STDERR; open ( FILE, ">>./testing.stdout" ) or die "$!\n\n"; print FILE "this\n"; system('ls') == 0 or print FILE "oops $!\n"; print "that\n";

results in:

this DBVARS.main getServername.pl logs nssswitch.pl nssswitch.sh testing.stdout tryCloseSDTOUT.pl

I get why "that\n" doesn't print, but why does the system output appear in my file? Apparently, it's because it has nowhere else to go. My usual methods of investigation have turned up dry...

In reply to close STDOUT and system equal strange? by jptxs
