NAME ^

IO::Capture::Tellfix - Fix ::Tie_STDx TELL() issue

VERSION ^

This document describes IO::Capture::Tellfix version 0.05

SYNOPSIS ^

        use IO::Capture::Stderr;
        use IO::Capture::Tellfix;

DESCRIPTION ^

IO::Capture::Tie_STDx does not implement a TELL() method. The bug has been reported to the author. Meanwhile, a fix is needed.

IO::Capture::Tellfix works around this bug:

        IO::Capture::Stdout is loaded, if it's not already. 
    tell(*STDOUT) is attempted
        if the tell fails, 
                then the workaround is loaded. 

The hope is that this will play equally well with the current version and any future version that does or does not fix the 'TELL' bug.
