in thread Which way is recommended ?

There is an implicit check for definedness when you do while (<FOO>) { }. See the perlop section on I/O Operators.

while (<FOO>) { # do stuff } # terminates if we get a line that evaluates to false. while (my $l = <FOO>) { # do stuff } # only terminates at end of file (or error reading file) while (defined(my $l = <FOO>)) { # do stuff } # Let's take advantage of $_ and be somewhat safe(r). { local $_; while (<FOO>) { # do stuff } }
