I'm glad you found it useful :)

But, I still don't get your problem with using file handles stored in hash elements with close when strict and warnings are enabled?

C:\test>perl -mstrict -wE" open $f{w},'<words.txt'; print ~~readline($ +f{w}); close $f{w}" aa

I can never work out how to use them with the angle bracket (<>) form of readline, but no problem with open or close.

    In my current version of Perl, I cannot reproduce the problem.

    Gut says your first guess a decade ago was right -- perhaps an old version of Perl (even for then). Seems a likely culprit.
