in reply to dynamic filenames, indirect filehandles

IMHO, I'm not sure what you're trying to achieve here, but here are a few pointers:

  • Always  use strict;
  • Why confuse yourself with the ARGuments? Why not use $ARGV[0], $ARGV[1]..etc?
  • open FH, '<', '<path of file>';
  • Why are you appending a file handle ($outfile)with  $sl ?
  • Indent


Update:Use split;

Cheers,
Rupesh.

    Thanks rupesh
    I don't mean to append the filehandle, I mean to append the name ("path") of the file. Incrementing the name is just what I want to achieve. This is the core of my question: For a 20,000 line $readfile, I want to produce 20 separate $outfiles, files, named (for example) "outa", "outb", etc.

    Why are you appending a file handle ($outfile)with $sl ?

    So that he can say $outfile++ and generate unique file names for each split file.
