in thread in memory files in 5.6.1

Thanks Liz

update: Thanks hanenkamp

IO::stringy looks useful, but as far as I can tell an stringy object can't be treated exactly like a file handle.

For example I have to invoke the print method of the object instead of printing to a file handle

    Not true, this should work:

    use IO::Scalar; my $fh = IO::Scalar->new; print $fh "foo\n"; # Rather than $fh->print ... # or, if you prefer select $fh; print "bar\n";

    This works through the magic of a tied file handle. See perltie for details on tying a file handle.
