Re: Can't use string ("main::STDOUT") as a symbol ref while "strict refs" in use

GlitchMr is correct however there is another way (this is Perl after all... TIMTOWTDI). Just disable strict refs.

perl -Mstrict -M-strict=refs -e "print {select()} 6" 6

Long version:

use strict; no strict 'refs' print {select()} 6;

[Copacetic]: Sorry, I've just discovered that it gives a useful error message if I select "preview" (as well as removing the "create" button for some reason). It was that my title wasn't long enough. Thanks for your help.
