./devel/p5-IO-Null, Perl module for null filehandles

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.01nb13, Package name: p5-IO-Null-1.01nb13, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

This is a class for null file handles. Calling a constructor of this
class always succeeds, returning a new null file handle. Writing to
any object of this class is always a no-operation, and returns true.
Reading from any object of this class is always no-operation, and
returns empty-string or empty-list, as appropriate.

You could say:
open(NULL, '>/dev/null') || die "WHAAT?! $!";
and get a null FH that way. But not everyone is using an OS
that has a /dev/null


Required to run:
[lang/perl5]

Required to build:

Log message:
Update packages using a search.cpan.org HOMEPAGE to metacpan.org.

The former now redirects to the latter.

This covers the most simple cases where http://search.cpan.org/dist/name
can be changed to https://metacpan.org/release/name.

Reviewed by hand to hopefully make sure no unwanted changes sneak in.
