in thread Continued Fractions

Why would <STDIN> differ from <> in this respect? Hitting an EOF character should work the same in either case. The only difference between <STDIN> and <> is that the latter will step through the lines of any files specified on the command line:
$ perl script.pl $ perl script.pl file1 file2 filen
The first reads from the STDIN, but the second only references the contents of each of the files.

    Yup, little difference indeed.

    The emphasis was on the || exit thing. Without it the script will have to be killed explicitly, and perl script.pl < my_prepared_input > theoutput will loop forever.

    Anyway, it was just a small suggestion (and a good practice in general)
