Has a filehandle been binmode'd

fireartist has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Is there a way to check whether binmode() has been called on a filehandle?

If not, I notice in the perl source file PerlIO/via/via.xs that there's a method PerlIO_modestr which might help, but I lack the tuits to look into this further. Any pointers appreciated.

    Hmmm ... well you could try Fcntl; however, it may not be supported on your platform:

    !#/usr/bin/perl use Fcntl; open( FH, "<", "/bin/cat" ) or die "cannot open file: $!\n"; $flags = fcntl(FH, F_GETFL, 0) or die "Can't get flags for the file: $ +!\n"; if( $flags | O_BINARY ) { print "OPEN FOR BINARY\n" }

    See PerlIO and then the get_layers function.
    my @l = PerlIO::get_layers($fh, details => 1);
