in reply to read file into scalar

Hi,

perhaps you're doing it just for brevity, but I can't resist pointing out that it's a very bad idea to use flock() with numeric constants (e.g. 1). You should use the Fcntl module and import the flock constants:

use Fcntl qw/:flock/; ... open flock($fh, FLOCK_EX); # or: flock($fh, FLOCK_SH); ...

Aside from being portable, it has the added benefit of being more friendly on the eyes and less demanding to your memory.
