in reply to Redirect output of Test::More/Simple

Without knowing the error you got, we can't do much to help. However, running "perl foo.t > output.txt" should always work.

    This code:

    use warnings; use strict; $|++; use Test::More qw/no_plan/; ok(1);

    When run as " > h.txt" in the command prompt (cmd), triggers the following error (tried on two different machines with different versions of Windows and ActivePerl):

    Can't dup STDOUT: Permission denied at D:/Perl/lib/Test/ li +ne 1322. Compilation failed in require at D:/Perl/lib/Test/Builder/ li +ne 3. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at D:/Perl/lib/Test/Builder/Module.p +m line 3. Compilation failed in require at D:/Perl/lib/Test/ line 22. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at D:/Perl/lib/Test/ line 22. Compilation failed in require at C:\eli\perl_stuff\ line 4. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at C:\eli\perl_stuff\ line 4.

    However, running "perl > h.txt" works fine.
