in reply to Best Way to Redirect STDERR to a Scalar

I know you are using Perl 5.6.1 but if you were using Perl 5.8...

perldoc -f open #(snip) File handles can be opened to "in memory" files held in Perl scalars via: open($fh, '>', \$variable) or die "$!"; Though if you try to re-open "STDOUT" or "STDERR" as an "in memory" file, you have to close it first: close STDOUT; open STDOUT, '>', \$variable or die "Can't open STDOUT: $!";

[Tanktalus]: Lady_Aleena: yeah, I can reproduce your issue, it's confusing alright :)
[Tanktalus]: I'm sure it'll make perfect sense once we figure it out :)
[Lady_Aleena]: marioroy, not a quoting error. I can't run it on the command line. It is when I put it in qx() where it falls apart.
Discipulus hired to use Perl in Eataly? haired maybe
[choroba]: We're hiring
[Discipulus]: wow praha!
[Tanktalus]: choroba: do I have to move? :)
Discipulus has too much roots in a 2770 yo town
[marioroy]: I want a job after completing MCE in about a week. But feel that I've moved to the wrong place.
[choroba]: I fear so. We have offices in Prague, Brno, Saigon and San Francisco.
