Re: Dangerous diamonds! (accident)
in thread Dangerous diamonds!
I did a quick super search for nodes by merlyn that mention "local" and "*ARGV" and I found a bunch of uses of <> that don't set @ARGV= "< input.file" nor mention the dangers of not doing that.
Did merlyn go back and fix them? The super search turned up 9 nodes and he sets @ARGV explicitly in each one. (Not to "<input.fil" but there is no danger in forgoing the '<' if the filename is explicit, right?)
