For a minute there I thought you were on to something, but
alas it turned out to be an incorrect assumption. Here is
how I see it...

In the code Test module 'makes a copy' of the STDOUT filehandle

This has the same effect as below:
open( TESTOUT, ">&STDOUT" ) || die "dup failed";
In either case Perl comes back complaining that: "A file or directory in the path name does not exist at ...". Which means that the last parameter in the 5.6.1 version of open must point to a string with a path/filename. mgc

In reply to Re^2: Redirecting STDOUT from internal function with 5.6.1 restrictions by mgc
