in reply to leave log files open

Surely I should not open the file write the text close the file to satisfy PerlCritic

No, you shouldn't. You should not do anything dumb in order to satisfy that dumb tool.

    Please note, when I use the phrase "dumb tool", I mean that the tool itself is dumb, as in has no intelligence built in.

    Using the tool is not dumb if you use it as it is intended to be used; which is to say you chose the policies that you find useful and use the tool to double check yourself.

    Where it goes wrong is when people modify their code to "satisfy" policies that they obviously disagree with.
