package NewHandle;
require Tie::Handle;
@ISA = qw(Tie::Handle);

sub TIEHANDLE { ... }       # Overrides inherited method
package main;
tie *FH, 'NewHandle';

The Tie::StdHandle package provide most methods for file handles described in perltie (the exceptions are "UNTIE" and "DESTROY"). It causes tied file handles to behave exactly like standard file handles and allow for selective overwriting of methods.
