in reply to Three argument version of open '>-' (updated)

Maybe try open $fh, '>&', STDOUT;

behavior looks consistent when autoflush is activated.

Otherwise please use a similar code-template for a SSCCE.

use v5.12; use warnings; use Data::Dump qw/pp dd/; sub tst { my $vers = shift; open STDOUT, ">-"; # restore STDOUT $|=1; say STDERR "********* testing $vers\n"; my $fh; open $fh, ">-" if $vers eq "open2"; $fh = \*STDOUT if $vers eq "copyref"; open $fh, '>&', STDOUT if $vers eq "redirect"; $fh->autoflush; say "$vers 1"; close STDOUT; say $fh "$vers 2"; say "$vers 3"; } tst("redirect"); tst("open2"); tst("copyref");
