in thread about link()

Thank you very much! This explains everything. So I tried with this code :
open O, ">a.bin"; binmode O; print O "Hello World!"; close O; link "a.bin", "b.bin"; open L, ">b.bin"; binmode L; print L "Bye World!"; close L; open O, "a.bin"; print while ( <O> ); close O; # prints "Bye World!"
This proved an in-place edit works in binary files as expected. It's glad to know that it's my fault!! Otherwise I don't know how to fix it. Good day! =)

[ambrus]: I'm not trying to recommend PHP, but I think it has way too bad a name because of its past.
[ambrus]: This is different from MS Word, which was already a good editor in the pre-unicode days (in word for windows versions 2 and 6, which ran on windows 3 but also on windows 95), only it wasn't trying to solve the task of writing maths papers back then.
[Discipulus]: ah ok, sounds reasonable; with no fear: Perl all life long
[ambrus]: Mind you, LaTeX is currently still useful for writing math paper or snippet content without styling in such a way that the
[ambrus]: formatting conventions of a journal or website can be quickly applied to it, and MS Office and LibreOffice has not quite solved this (although it's better for this than it used to be),
