Are you using ActiveState or Strawberry Perl? and which version?

It seems that there is a missmatch between what Perl sees as its file descriptor 2 and the C lib file descriptor 2.

use File::Temp qw(tempfile); use Inline 'C'; open my $olderr, '>&STDERR'; # save STDERR my ($fh, $fn) = tempfile(); open STDERR, '>&', $fh; printf "fileno STDERR: %d\n", fileno(STDERR); print STDERR "foo!"; test_err(); open STDERR, '>&', $olderr; # reset STDERR close $fh; open my $e, '<', $fn; my $err = <$e>; print "|$err|\n"; __END__ __C__ void test_err() { FILE *err = fdopen(2, "a+"); (void)fprintf (err, "ERROR"); } # here it says: # fileno STDERR: 2 # |foo!| # ERROR

Besides that, don't trust what you get from Inline::C, the perlio.h header is included before your C code and most stdio functions are replaced by macros calling into perl own implementations (that not-too-unsurprisingly, do not work as expected either):

use strict; use warnings; use Inline 'C'; test_err(); __END__ __C__ #define xstr(s) str(s) #define str(s) #s void test_err() { (void)fprintf(stderr, "ERROR goes to " xstr(stderr) "\n"); } # here, it outputs: # ERROR goes to (*(*Perl_IStdIO_ptr(((PerlInterpreter *)Perl_get_conte +xt())))->pStderr)((*Perl_IStdIO_ptr(((PerlInterpreter *)Perl_get_cont +ext()))))

update: the funny thing is that when a subprocess is launched, perl file descriptors are the ones inherited:

open my $olderr, '>&STDERR'; # save STDERR my ($fh, $fn) = tempfile(); open STDERR, '>&', $fh; printf "fileno STDERR: %d\n", fileno(STDERR); print STDERR "foo!"; test_err(); system "perl -e die"; open STDERR, '>&', $olderr; # reset STDERR close $fh; open my $e, '<', $fn; my $err = <$e>; print "|$err|\n"; __END__ __C__ void test_err() { FILE *err = fdopen(2, "a+"); (void)fprintf (err, "ERROR"); } # fileno STDERR: 2 # |foo!Died at -e line 1. # | # ERROR
