( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Odd--you're right, though I can't figure out why. The docs seem to say that you get a new glob when you localize:

The construct local *name; creates a whole new symbol table entry for the glob "name" in the current package. That means that all variables in its glob slot ($name, @name, %name, &name, and the "name" filehandle) are dynamically reset.

In any case, the following does work correctly:

open(S1, "/dev/null"); $a=*S1{IO}; { local(*S1); open(S1, "/dev/null"); $b=*S1{IO}; } print "$a $b\n";
IO::Handle=IO(0x101536f8) IO::Handle=IO(0x1013cdec)

There is no sig.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
