in reply to Openind file for read+append

Have you looked into using the 3-argument form of open? It's safer just in case $host_file starts with a '<' or a '>'; this could change what your code does.

Beyond that, +> opens the file for both read/write but +< is probably better because +> would clobber the file first. I don't see where you are attempting to append anything to the file though...

[erix]: pull requests
[choroba]: originally, you sent a pull request to someone by email, i.e. you asked them to pull from your repo
[Discipulus]: if is the author of a patch, is more like a 'request to push' into rather than a pull request..
[choroba]: as it's considered unpolite to push to someone else's repo
[choroba]: and in fact, you don't push into the target repo, you push into your branch of your fork
[choroba]: the maintainer of the upstream repo than "merges" the pull request, i.e. they pull from your fork into the upstream
[Discipulus]: ' i.e. you asked them to pull from your repo' =~ I (subj) want to push
[Discipulus]: chorobayour words are reasonable
[choroba]: I'm just repeating some else's words as I remembered them after having asked the same question
[choroba]: s/some/someone/
