On being 'critical'by herby1620 (Monk)
|on Dec 14, 2006 at 18:56 UTC||Need Help??|
herby1620 has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
A line in my code says:
and this works WONDERFUL. I have no problems with it. It has been running for many months. Now the boss wants to have all the code in the respoitory scanned with Perl::Critic, which I generally accept as a "good thing" (use proper Martha Stewart voice here).
The problem is that the line barfs for a couple of reasons:
1) A bareword file handle and
2) Two argument open.
My question: What is the 'fix'? From the stuff I read, if I want to duplicate a file handle, I should use the two argument form. Also, what do I quote to get around the 'bareword' complaint. The idea was to keep the file handle inside the module (TagPrint) since it is very localized.
