in thread Perl Idioms Explained - my $string = do { local $/; <FILEHANDLE> };

Check here (tye solution) for why this may cause problems in some code.

Of course, you could shorten his solution slightly:

my $data= do { local( *ARGV, $/ ) = [ $filename ]; <> };

Globs are such fun. Hope this helps.

[Discipulus]: my warmest comprehension karlgoethebier ;=(
[Discipulus]: yes LanX.. is so good to be appreciated (I fortunately have a big self estimation that compensate)
[LanX]: you can manipulate a html tree by addressing and replacing so called document objects (DOM) and from my experience the same methods can be used with any XML, though I didn't test all browsers yet
LanX just joking, playing "ego judo"
[marto]: good morning all
[Corion]: Hi marto!
[marto]: the race to the bottom continues, many people lost their job yesterday as a client moves to another outsourcer
[LanX]: brexit or perlxit ?
[Corion]: Ow, marto :-/ I hope you aren't affected (except for the looming dread of more work for the same pay)
[marto]: unrelated
