I never thought of tieing the variable... this is how I use IO::Scalar when I wish to redirect output.
It's actually more useful for when you just need to have output to a variable rather than to some file handle:

use IO::Scalar; my ( $STD1 $STD2 ); $STD1 = new IO::Scalar \$STD2; select $STD1; print <<DONE; blah blah blah All this is being appended to the $STD2 variable So some more text here and we are... DONE open FILE, ">test.txt"; print FILE $STD2; close FILE;
Yes, odd example since you could have just used:

open FILE, ">test.txt"; select FILE; print <<DONE; all that stuff again. I am DONE

But you get the point...
