in reply to Console output != file output

Tip #1 from the Basic debugging checklist: warnings

print() on closed filehandle FH at

You are opening the file for input, not output: see open. This works for me:

use warnings; use strict; my $type = 123; open (FH, '>out.txt'); print FH "start" . $type . "end"; close FH;

    He should be doing 3 arg open and would be best if he change that file handle to a var. Just some best practices.

    use warnings; use strict; my $type = 123; my $FH; open ($FH, '>', 'out.txt'); print $FH ("start" . $type . "end"); close $FH;
