Yes, true. It's actually more complicated than that. A lexical filehandle is made into a GLOB reference by open. But since that open() happens in FileHandle::Track, the associated symbol is generated using that package and the lexical filehandle variable

Ah, but that is yet another different problem affecting only the name of the glob, which is something quite unimportant.

I was talking about file handles passed as arguments by name. open looks for then into the caller package, so you would probably have to add specific code to handle those cases and qualify the file handle names yourself, or use some other trick, like creating the wrapper in the DB namespace, or using XS, etc.

update:

I can see no way to circumvent that

Probably some module exists on CPAN allowing you to change the glob name.

in thread Track open file handles by shmem

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.
