in reply to XML File Slicing Golf(ish)

This is what I came up with. It does essentially the same as your program, but it's a little bit shorter. Notice that I dropped the close altogether, because open automatically closes the file handle if it was previously opened (see perlopentut -- I wouldn't consider this a good programming practice, but I'm assuming this is a one-shot program here), so you don't have to keep track of whether file is open. Also, you don't need to read the whole file in memory at once.
use strict; my $n="0000"; while (<>) { if (/^<\?xml version/) { open OF, ">outfile_$n.xml" or die "open: $!\n"; $n++; } print OF $_; }
