in thread Open pipe to a function?

You could probably do some tricks with IO::Multiplex. Just save the orginal filehandle like this:

my $old_stderr = *STDERR;

And then reopen STDERR with IO::Multiplex with $old_stderr and a filehandle to the log file.

I wanted to explore how Perl's closures can be manipulated, and ended up creating an object system by accident.
