NAME

Tie::Alias::Handle - required by Tie::Alias::TIEHANDLE

DESCRIPTION

This module holds a single error message, suggesting that the user append an ampersand to their mode string to duplicate a handle: handles already have a robust aliasing mechanism.

BUGS

Buffers may get duplicated when you duplicate file handles, also a new handle is opened instead of aliasing to a handle, so this doesn't really work to provide an alias like the other Tie::Alias modules at this time. Future releases will be complete, hopefully. Perhaps one of the file handle team will adopt this module.
