It won't affect your IO count but

my $rec;foreach(@test){$rec.=$_."\n";}

Is much better coded as

my $rec = join "\n", @test;

roughly 3 times faster on 1000 elements.


Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
