Appropriate usage of IO::CaptureOutput for a mysqldump and gzip?
I am afraid for the database size. Dumps becomes very large and the buffer also becomes large. How about using --result-file and --log-error option of mysqldump?
For capturing output of other programes, I see Capture::Tiny examples here at monk many times. I would like to give it a try, but, not yet.
