NAME ^

FileCache - keep more files open than the system permits

SYNOPSIS ^

    cacheout $path;
    print $path @data;

DESCRIPTION ^

The cacheout function will make sure that there's a filehandle open for writing available as the pathname you give it. It automatically closes and re-opens files if you exceed your system file descriptor maximum.

BUGS ^

sys/param.h lies with its NOFILE define on some systems, so you may have to set $cacheout::maxopen yourself.
