in reply to Re: DATA Handle
in thread DATA Handle

larryk, you can read a __DATA__ that is in another file.

Imagine you have a perl module called Store_Config.pm, which has some information in it's __DATA__ tags that you need to read. If you know the namespace that the __DATA__ handle is in, you can do this to read it:

use strict; use Store_Config; use Symbol qw(qualify_to_ref); #Pull the reference to the __DATA__ handle my $fh = qualify_to_ref(DATA => 'Store_Config'); #$fh can now be acted on like a file handle read($fh, my $config, -s $fh); print "Store_Config.pm's __DATA__ content is: [$config]\n";
