A utility function that returns either the filehandle passed in (if defined) or a IO::Handle to STDOUT or the specified destination (which is a fileno(filehandle)).
It would be nice to make this function more general (e.g., what about stdin or stderr? a specified file?).
Ensure no dups in the list (or list reference) we get.
The return value is either the list or a reference to a copy of the list, depending on the calling context. The list will have been sorted as a side effect.
- to_fh(filename, method)
Return a filehandle. If the argument is a file name, we will open the file with the method specified, for reading if unspecified. If the argument is a filehandle, it is simply returned.
- split_value($name, $pattern, $value)
Split the value using the pattern given. For each of the resulting pieces, prepend "$name: ". This function is used when there are a collection of values for a given name (e.g., q-values, accept values).
