Id want it global. Otherwise Id subclass IO::Handle and instantiate that class instead; that works just as well and wont conflict with anything else.

How does overriding DESTROY break thread safety?

Makeshifts last the longest.

    If you attempted to limit the effect of the change to that one function (and those it calls) using local *IO::Handle::DESTROY = sub { ... };, your code wouldn't be thread-safe.

[Discipulus]: if you hate FIle::Find
[Lady_Aleena]: I don't hate it, it just drives me crazy.
[Discipulus]: LA the solution is portable to whatever
[Lady_Aleena]: File::Find doesn't have a simple sub wanted example, like get the name of the file.
[Discipulus]: there is also find2perl with your perl installation
