NAME ^

PerlIO::Scalar - support module for in-memory IO.

SYNOPSIS ^

   open($fh,"<...",\$scalar);

DESCRIPTION ^

PerlIO::Scalar only exists to use XSLoader to load C code that provides support for treating a scalar as an "in memory" file.

All normal file operations can be performed on the handle. The scalar is considered a stream of bytes. Currently fileno($fh) returns undef.
