lib:SelectSaver

See the current Perl documentation for lib:SelectSaver.

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:


SelectSaver - save and restore selected file handle



    use SelectSaver;

    {
       my $saver = new SelectSaver(FILEHANDLE);
       # FILEHANDLE is selected
    }
    # previous handle is selected

    {
       my $saver = new SelectSaver;
       # new handle may
    

A SelectSaver object contains a reference to the file handle that was selected when it was created. If its new method gets an extra parameter, then that parameter is selected; otherwise, the selected file handle remains unchanged.

When a SelectSaver is destroyed, it re-selects the file handle that was selected when it was created.
