in thread trouble with substitution

I usually use 'require' to thaw dumped text.

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; my $dat = require "dump.txt";

It has been very handy for me.

    Yes, that will work as well, provided your file lives somewhere @INC points to.


    A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James
