in thread what is the purpose of Tie::File

  • Using perl -l gives you autochomp which Tie::File has built in. From your other nodes I see you use this frequently to add a newline when you print.
  • $^W = 1; and then use Warnings; a few lines later?
  • Using autodie means the script stops after the unlink line even if there is a file to delete. Why not just die if -e $file; ?
  • Does $| = 1; have any effect on Tie::File? With the option memory => 0 it is already not cacheing anything.

I don't understand the point of this code. Tying to a file that doesn't exist, adding a line, then deleting the newly created file doesn't seem useful.

      What doesn't make sense to me is how a node that has so many obvious code problems can muster up a positive node reputation.


        Ah, the mistake you've made is in thinking that everyone actually reads post content, or tests solutions before voting ;)
