And nobody in his right mind would expect the magic <> to be actually implemented in Perl. Do you? I think, not. C provides far less dangerous library functions.
Now that's just ridiculous. Larry and the perl 5 porters who wrote it expected it to behave that way, as would anyone who read the documentation.


MJD says you can't just make shit up and expect the computer to know what you mean, retardo!
I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6x+5.8x. I take requests.

    But is it the sane thing for it to do? I think not. Neither does any of the other opponents, I would think (tye, Juerd).

    The most sane thing to do would be to drop support for 2 argument open, putting mode and file path into one argument, completely.
