in reply to How to make a copy of filehandle

Are you looking for tell and seek ?

They help getting and setting the "pointer" of a filehandle.

PS: regarding your code

>   open ($hdl_sauv, "<",$file) || die "cannot open $file\n";

are you aware that $file is a filehandle and not a path?


If you wanna dup a filehandle you need something like "<&" as MODE. See open for details.

Though don't think this handles position the way you want to.
