in reply to Writing the output of test::more in to another file

The simplest way would be to redirect STDERR to STDOUT in BEGIN block:

Now, you can redirect to some file with no problems: > results.txt

Or you can invoke your program like:

perl > foo.txt 2>&1
It does the same thing (if you're on Unix-like OS).

    thanks that worked.

    In 'perl > foo.txt 2>&1'

    What "2>&1" is for? thanks

      You can read more about that in Bash Guide for Beginners, chapter 9. Here's a quote from that document that explains "1" and "2": Each open file gets assigned a file descriptor. The file descriptors for stdin, stdout, and stderr are 0, 1, and 2, respectively.

      So "2>&1" means: redirect stderr to stdout. See more examples in the guide.

[marto]: so I have to work Saturday, which is good and bad. Bad in the sense that I have to be hear early :( Good in that I am here only as support for another client project, so I get to spend the day working on my personal 'ToDo' list, without the kids :P
[Corion]: marto: Ooof - but yes, being there as only second level support or third level support is good and if you have enough things that you can work on, it won't be a wasted (if paid) day
[marto]: I've opted for a day off later on, rather than pay. I only have to do about 45 mins work for the client, but do need to hang around
[Corion]: marto: Even better ;)
