wtf??? Where the heck is die printing, anyway? And why doesn't this
work like (I think) it should?:
#! /usr/bin/perl -w
open STDOUT, "> foo.out.txt"
or die "Couldn't open outfile!!!: $!\n"; # not sure where this goes <g>
open STDERR, "> foo.err.txt"
or die "Couldn't open errfile!!!: $!\n"; # not sure where this goes <g>
open SENDMAIL, "| /usr/LIB/sendmail -t"
or die "AAAUUUUUGGGGHHHHH!!!: $!\n"; # respects to Sparky Schulz
print SENDMAIL "I have a dream!\n" # Respects to the Reverend
or die "It turned out to be a nightmare...: $!\n";
Einstein himself said that God doesn't roll dice. But he was wrong. And
in fact, anyone who has played role-playing games knows that God
probably had to roll quite a few dice to come up with a character like
Einstein. -- Larry Wall C. Abney
