in reply to Copying a file to a temporary file

According to the docs of File::Temp, if you use File::Temp::tempfile in scalar context, it only returns the filehandle. You can then use this filehandle as an argument to File::Copy::copy, which accepts both filenames and filehandles. Update: You'll have to find out if the warning in File::Copy's docs about using filehandles apply to your situation.
