in reply to Combining files

If you don't run on a *NIX platform or you don't have cat available for some other reason then something like this would do the job as well:

use IO::File; my $output_fh = IO::File->new( 'fullstaffinfo', 'w' ) or die $!; for my $input (<staffinfo*>) { my $input_fh = IO::File->new( $input, 'r' ) or die $!; $output_fh->print(do { local $/ = undef; <$input_fh> }); $input_fh->close; } $output_fh->close;

Cheers, Flo

    I don't think there's any guarantee of the order in which <staffinfo*> will return files. Adding sort avoids the problem. (I prefer to use glob explicitely over using the highly overloaded <...> notation.)

    for my input (sort glob 'staffinfo*') { ... }

    This looks like just the ticket.
