in reply to Broken Function

it doesn't really work as intended.

That is a lousy error description.

    I get something like this: cat: /proc/cpuinfo: No such file or directory print() on closed filehandle $FILE_H at line 91. I am expecting my function to create a new file whether or not the file exists. But, my major hurdle is the second error message.

      If you had not commented out your "or die "Could not open file: $!\n" code, then the reason why the file handle did not open would have been printed.
