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...
