RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for perlio::scalar (redhat section 3pm)

PerlIO::scalar(3pm)		 Perl Programmers Reference Guide	      PerlIO::scalar(3pm)

NAME
       PerlIO::scalar - support module for in-memory IO.

SYNOPSIS
	  open($fh,"<",\$scalar);
	  open($fh,">",\$scalar);

       or

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