This toolkit primarily provides modules for performing both traditional
and object-oriented I/O) on things *other* than normal filehandles; in
particular, IO::Scalar, IO::ScalarArray, and IO::Lines.
In the more-traditional IO::Handle front, we have IO::AtomicFile, which
may be used to painlessly create files that are updated atomically.
And in the "this-may-prove-useful" corner, we have IO::Wrap, whose
exported wraphandle() function will clothe anything that's not a blessed
object in an IO::Handle-like wrapper... so you can just use OO syntax
and stop worrying about whether your function's caller handed you a
string, a globref, or a FileHandle.
This Bugzilla has been reviewed by Red Hat and is not planned on being
addressed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, and therefore will be closed.
If this bug is critical to production systems, please contact your Red
Hat support representative and provide sufficient business
justification. Issue is already fixed in RHEL-6/7.
