USENET, so I'm asking for him) that uses Expect extensively. We like
to be able to view Expect debug output by setting $Expect::Debug. The
problem is that Expect.pm prints debug output to STDERR, which spews a
huge amount of output, causing our regular debug messages (generated
by utility functions in a module we created more or less for that
purpose) to get lost in the shuffle.
I'd like to be able to redirect Expect's debug output to a file,
without having to redirect STDERR manually-- is there a way to do it?
Offhand, all I can come up with is changing our debug functions to use
$stderr instead of STDERR, and duping STDERR to $stderr when our
utility module is loaded. That's less than ideal, so if there's a
better way, I'd love to hear it.
Come to think of it, there are already a million monkeys on a million
typewriters, and Usenet is NOTHING like Shakespeare.
