( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Im having the same problem w/ writing to a file, using Win2k/ActivePerl Thinking that win2k is not handling the opening of files correctly. Please, without saying, dont use win2k, can someone post a work around? I updated w/ the suggestion you posted as such:
#!perl -w open(FILE, "data.txt"); #opens data.txt in read-mode while(<FILE>){ #reads line by line from FILE which i +s the filehandle for data.txt chomp; print "Saw $_ in data.txt\n"; #shows you what we have read } close FILE; #close the file. $a = "keylogger.dat"; open FILE, ">$a" or die; #opens file to be written to while(<>){ #while we're getting input from the keyb +oard print FILE $_; #write it to our file } close FILE; #then close our file.
"Re: File Input and Output by gpoduval on Jan 30, 2001 at 06:42 hmm...when i tried the >>filename nothing got appended into the file. it remained as it is i am using activestate activeperl for windows on win2k. i suspect this might be because i dont know how to end a program. anybody can help me ? www.comp.nus.edu.sg/~gokulpod"

    [Cosmic37]: when slurping one can undef the record separator thingy; but presumably one should redefine it afterwards? how?
    [Cosmic37]: I'm wondering whether there is a specific/(or at least "usual") command or does one take a copy before undefining and then copy it back after slurping file into a string?
    [BarApp]: I need help accessing perl files. I need permission!!!
    [Cosmic37]: I wish thee a peachy life and express gratitude for considering my pathetic questions
    [erix]: record separator
    [Cosmic37]: Permissions are interesting earthlings. Did nature determine who gives permission and who asks permission. Who was the first to get permission? Are you not related to them as one big earthling family?
