Subject: Can't copy filehandle, bad file descriptor?
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 3.4k
Just reviewed your excellent-looking mudule: Just what I need! Scores a five/five on everything but overall, because either it doesn't work, or I can't get it to work. When doing exactly what the POD SYNOPSIS says, I get an undocumented error at compilation time telling me "Can't copy filehandle...bad file descriptor" which means nothing to me. When performing the tie by hand, I get nice output to a file, but discover there is no tie'd CLOSE method.

I've added CLOSE to the latest release, 0.87, uploaded and available soon. As for the other error, there's little I can do without seeing the code that failed for you. Both the autotie and the manual tie synopses work for me. The error that you're getting is the result of not being able to copy a filehandle. Please make sure that you're passing in the required args properly. You can check the docs or test.pl if you're having trouble, or you can just email me directly and I'll be happy to assist.
