I fear you misinterpret my use of the word 'contadictory'. The warnings are contradictory merely in the context of attempting to use the modules together in the way I describe; under such circumstances you cannot heed both.

    Howdy!

    True...given your particular usage, you can't slavishly heed both, but you can make a mature decision which warning is superfluous in your specific situation. (did I use enough big words? :))

      ... which was the decision I was looking for advice on :)

      Though there doesn't seem to be a total consensus as to which way to call this; in light of people's resopnses, my instincts are inclining towards the usage of filenames.

      In fact, I am beginning to wonder if relying on POSIX functions is A Good Thing. Perhaps File::Temp::PurePerl might be a good idea?
