Good idea. My code was just an example. There are problems with the implementation, though.

  • For starters, you cannot easily replace an existing file handle, so you failed to address the original question.

  • No support for $,.

  • No support for $\.

  • No error code is returned. People won't be able to use this module when error checking is being done.

  • No support for write, binmode, etc. People won't be able to use this module when these are called with the filehandle.

  • Only your open function requires 5.8.0, and it could easily be rewritten to avoid that requirement.

  • Using $/ as the line terminator would be better than \n because it would give more flexibility to the caller at no cost.

  • _emit for //g would be more efficient as _emit while //g.

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).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
