If you're printing to a filehandle, then use a IO::File-derived class that will encapsulate that die for you, and test that. I'm not quite sure how STDOUT or STDERR runs out of space, though.


  • In general, if you think something isn't in Perl, try it out, because it usually is. :-)
  • "What is the sound of Perl? Is it not the sound of a wall that people have stopped banging their heads against?"
