[Pdx-pm] Emulate a file in memory?

Is is possible, in Perl, to emulate a file in memory? Open it, read
from, write to etc. then save to disk when closed?
Here is what I'm trying to do. Create an application that stores data
in a SQLite database stored in memory. When done or before using the
data; encrypt/decrypt the whole thing, before/after a save-to/read-from
disk. Of course a DataDumper like datastructure would work also but
I'm a SQL/database kind of thinker.
I'm thinking of a perl implementation of an eWallet kind of application.
What are (are there any?) the correct terms in perl-speak for this? I
looked eleven pages into a CPAN search and found a few modules that
looked promising but not, to the best of my understaning, doing this.
This is assuming it is/will-be pure perl and there is no external
encryption/decruption program available.
I'm giving up trying to explain this. I think I'm just making it
worst. If it makes any kind of sense please point me in the right
direction. Otherwise I'll dig deeper in the books.
