Subject: Make filehandle from upload() act like an IO::Handle
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 501b
I discovered that I cannot use a filehandle returned by upload() in Archive::Zip::readFromFileHandle. The problem seems to be that the filehandle returned is neither a mere file glob nor a IO::Handle based object and does not understand most IO::Handle methods. It would be nice if upload() would return an IO::Handle or IO::File instead of the lightweight Fh, or, maybe safer in terms of backward compatibility, implement all of the missing methods (which could be autoloaded). Regards, Slaven

I'm writing to confirm that a fix for this was released in 3.41, with the addition of a handle() method. It's a feature I will appreciate as well! Mark
