How come you don't use $fh? I'd've thought
($fh, $filename) = tempfile($template, DIR => $dir) or die " $progname: Error creating $filename: $!";
would be mean ... ah. $fh is usable, so:
print $fh "\nS'working?\n" or die "$progname: Error writing to $filename: $!"; close ($fh) or die "$progname: Error closing $filename: $!"; print "Printed data to $filename\n";
works but once you close ($fh), its gone. By open(TMP, $filename .. you get a 2nd link and you can open and close TMP and still have the tmpfile $filename to work w/. On winx, I needed to $| = 1 for $fh|TMP to have any content in it (that I could see from another process), and if I *don't* close TMP the file is left around afterwards. I suppose this is what its supposed to do ... be good for semaphore files, hmm 'cept for its effort at unique file names might make expecting one difficult. The template'd work for that though.

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.
