Hello! :)

You can use pipes | to send a program output to (another) program input.
For example to send an attach with sendmail via CGI, without using a temporary file to mimencode the attach, you can pipe the output from cat to the input of mimencode:

#code from a sub unless (open(MAIL, "| $sendmail ")) { return 0 }; my $attach=$q->param('upfile'); my $path = $q->tmpFileName($attach); open (ATTACH,"cat $path | mimencode |") or return 0; [cut] close ATTACH; close MAIL;
