How come you don't use $fh? I'd've thought
($fh, $filename) = tempfile($template, DIR => $dir) or die " $progname: Error creating $filename: $!";
would be mean ... ah. $fh is usable, so:
print $fh "\nS'working?\n" or die "$progname: Error writing to $filename: $!"; close ($fh) or die "$progname: Error closing $filename: $!"; print "Printed data to $filename\n";
works but once you close ($fh), its gone. By open(TMP, $filename .. you get a 2nd link and you can open and close TMP and still have the tmpfile $filename to work w/. On winx, I needed to $| = 1 for $fh|TMP to have any content in it (that I could see from another process), and if I *don't* close TMP the file is left around afterwards. I suppose this is what its supposed to do ... be good for semaphore files, hmm 'cept for its effort at unique file names might make expecting one difficult. The template'd work for that though.

    [james28909]: im not quite how to explain it any better nick. you evolved from ignorance to intelligence. not the other way. the universe evolves from gas coulds and debris into planets stars and galaxies ect. it doesnt happen any other way. hence it has ....
    [james28909]: some kind of logic behind it
    [james28909]: and that is also anothe rpoint i made, i think it has to do with perception of the world around you. most people think of evolution on a human scale. why could life evolve on this planet? because this planet evolved in this solar system. and so on.
    [holli]: here's something for you to watch, James. I think you will like it
    [erix]: for the record: I have not downvoted anyone on that subthread that was my fault
    [james28909]: there are all kinds of things that had to happen to let life come to be. but at the same time, life may not be the end goal IF there is any kind of end goal lol
    [james28909]: well who is the person who gets to decide which behaviour is worthy of a downvote? a person with their own beliefs? xD
    [erix]: teleology -- I've never understood why that was thunk up
    [erix]: ( and when teleology was brought up, during my biology-study., I couldn't get an answer either )
    [1nickt]: FTR I agree with you about "design." Just not sure about the trajectory of evolution. THere are a lot of dead-ends in the evolutionary paths. I suspect homo sapiens is just one of them.
