    Yes, but while takes care of that - and we/you were talking about a while loop, weren't you?

Yes and no. I was talking about:
while (<FH>) { ... }

$line = <FH>; # on its own / not as while condition

Given the OP's prelude, I really thought that the OP was referring to these two cases. Sorry for the confusion! :)
