This is a bug report for perl from fiji@ayup.limey.net,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.35 running under perl v5.8.8.


-----------------------------------------------------------------
[Please enter your report here]

The POD for IPC::Open3 says:
  my($wtr, $rdr, $err);
  $pid = open3($wtr, $rdr, $err, 'some cmd and args', 'optarg', ...);

However, that always results in an undef $err.

Looking at the source of the module I see (in the sub _open3):
  unless (eval {
    $dad_wtr = $_[1] = gensym unless defined $dad_wtr && length $dad_wtr;
    $dad_rdr = $_[2] = gensym unless defined $dad_rdr && length $dad_rdr;
    1; })

It clearly is not doing the magic to autogenerate the $err handle.

Either the POD or the code needs to be fixed... the current behavior
ends up with the STDERR being sent to STDOUT.
