in reply to check if a filehandle is STDOUT when using use strict;

It depends on what do you mean by filehandle is in fact STDOUT. E.g. consider the following:

$ perl -E'open my $foo, "<&=1"; say $foo->fileno; say $foo == \*STDOUT + ? "STDOUT" : "Not STDOUT"' 1 Not STDOUT

    I can assume that it gets assigned the value of \*STDOUT I.E. $file= \*STDOUT ;

[ambrus]: erix: that one actually sucks. these days people should get rid of the old notion that TeX is the only thing you can use for decent mathematics writing, because MS Office and LibreOffice have reached the
[ambrus]: level where people can more easily write as good mathematical papers in them as the people who write bad LaTeX papers usually write.
[ambrus]: Yes, for like the first twenty of its years, TeX was basically the only system that allowed you to write decent maths papers, and C++ and PHP were programming languages that sucked, etc. But times change and people have to accept that.

[Discipulus]: php does not suck anymore?
[ambrus]: Discipulus: I'm not sure, but it certainly doesn't suck as much as it's used to. it's like C++, it sucks because people still recursively learn from twenty year old PHP examples,
[ambrus]: and they try to use the obsolete features that PHP has to support only for compatibility with old scripts. C++ and PHP both have the problem that people can't forget the past, because when they google "PHP" plus the problme they want to solve, they find b
[ambrus]: ad code examples.
[ambrus]: I'm not trying to recommend PHP, but I think it has way too bad a name because of its past.
