Copying files does not work in a Safe compartment,
despite an empty deny only list.

In order to reproduce the results just paste the code into 2 files
(, as indicated.

# File:
use strict;
use warnings;

use Safe;

print "Running SafeCopyDemo\n";


sub some_sub

sub do_copy_file
    if (@_ != 2)
        print ("Usage: from_file to_file\n");
    my ($from_filespec, $to_filespec) = @_;
    print "do_copy_file: Copying from $from_filespec to $to_filespec\n";
    my $cpt = load_compartment(__PACKAGE__, 'some_sub');

    if (defined($cpt) && exists &{$cpt->varglob('copy_file')})
        print "do_copy_file: Calling copy_file\n";
        &{$cpt->varglob('copy_file')}($from_filespec, $to_filespec);

sub load_compartment
    my ($package, @subs) = @_;
    my $cpt;
    print "load_compartment\n";
    if (-f '')
        $cpt = new Safe;
        print "load_compartment: Doing\n";
        $cpt->share_from('main', [ '%ENV' ]);
        $cpt->share_from($package, [ @subs ]);
        if ($@)
            die "Thrown exception from $@\n";
    return $cpt;

# File
use strict;
use warnings;

use File::Copy;

print "Loading\n";

sub copy_file
    my ($from_filespec, $to_filespec) = @_;

    copy ($from_filespec, $to_filespec);

    print "\tCopied $from_filespec to $to_filespec\n";
