in reply to script and its output on different handles

I've used IO::Tee to do this kind of thing in the past. In short, you use the module to create a file handle pointing to your log file and STDOUT kind of like this:
use warnings; use strict; use IO::Tee; open( my $log_fh, ">>", "mylog.txt" ) || die "Can't open the log for w +riting: $!"; my $output = IO::Tee->new( \*STDOUT, $log_fh ); print $output "Starting the script...\n";
That should print 'Starting the script...' to both the logfile and the screen. Also, since you now have a couple file handles at your disposal, you can just print to the screen or just print to '$log_fh' at will if you like.

[Discipulus]: new $workstation is arrived: SSD 250, sata 1TB, 16G RAM, only i5 CPU.. seems a good one: guess what first user installation will be?
[Corion]: Discipulus: Notepad++, or Perl ;)
[marto]: xubuntu or lubuntu
[Corion]: :-D
[marto]: my desktop is a core2 duo, 120GB SSD, 4GB RAM, boots to (GUI) login in less than 10 seconds from cold start
[Discipulus]: mah, winbuntu 10...
[marto]: whent he boys start school I'll build myself as new machine, ryzen based
[Corion]: marto: That's cool! I think my (home) desktop spends 30 seconds in the BIOS...
[Corion]: marto: Heh - currently they seem promising, but I think I'll stay with nVidia+Intel for the time being, as I've been bitten too often by bad AMD drivers
Discipulus is (still?) not a big fan of notepad++
