Description Petr Pisar 2012-06-21 05:17:43 EDT
Reopening file by scalar handler has been broken in perl 5.16.0:

    open FILE, '>', \my $content or die "Couldn't open scalar filehandle";
    open my $fh, ">&=FILE" or die "Couldn't open: $!";
    print $fh "Foo-Bar\n";
    close $fh;
    close FILE;
    print $content;

This has been fixed by upstream commit:
