( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Is is possible to tie STDIN/STDOUT using IO::Scalar such that an mini-program run via an eval statement would, when using STDIN and STDOUT, actually be reading and writing strings? This snippet gives the sense of what I'm trying to do:

# untested my $code = 'while (<>) { print; }'; # would typically be more interest +ing my $output = ''; # storage for output my $input = "more and more\nstuff here"; # would typically be more int +eresting { tie *STDIN, 'IO::Scalar', \$input; tie *STDOUT, 'IO::Scalar', \$output; eval "$code"; } # interesting stuff should be in output here
My program seems to hang at the  while(<>). Thanks for advice, great monks!

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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).
