in reply to F_GETFL and Win32

fcntl is not supported on win32 (see perlport).

You might try using Win32API::File or simply try printing

sub _is_writable { my $fh = shift; return eval { defined print { $fh } ''; }; }
though that may not be desireable.

update: It just dawned on me that printing on a CLOSED filehandle is different error, than simply a filehandle thats not opened for writing, in which case you want to use the fileno function.

I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).

[Corion]: Writing these import plugins was really nice though - in about 2 hours, I had imports for CSV, YAML and JSON, and adding XLS(X), SQLite (or DBI) data sources is also trivial. I'm idly wondering about separating the plugin into transport+parser, so ...
[Corion]: ... http:// URLs could be retrieved and then parsed, but I think that that would be overkill for a toy static site generator ;)
[Corion]: This is a toy clone of Jekyll, currently named MrHyde. But maybe I'll change that name to Jokel / Yokel, or some other play on the name , still mildly unfunny ;)
