Considering that Joe_'s example uses the handle INPUTFILE
, I don't have any problems with the implication, and I really don't see the need to come up with the snobby term correct idiom
. (You consider a piece of code with error handling to be correct idiom
? You're fired).
I really like the second one, thanks. Not for production use, of course. :)
Why not? It's not significant different from your correct idiom
. It misses error handling (but then, so does your correct idiom
), but that's easily handled: just add a // die "slurp: $!";
