 MSDOS perl: Can't create pipe: Out of memory

     Writing the temporary file has absolutely nothing to do with the
error message mentioned in the subject line.  If you are really getting
the message, "Out of memory", when trying to pipe data to/from a program
under MSDOS, then you are really running out of memory.

     In order to pipe data to/from a program, this program must, at some
point be executed.  If you do not have enough remaining low memory to
run that program, you will get that error message.
