You need to open a "file" and use a filehandle what you show applies to STDIN only.

    Yeah, because technically we haven't reached the files yet, we are supposed to "feed" the input of the file with re-direction to the program, like:
    cat MYFILE |

    so, in that case, I guess what I wrote with defined is the correct way?
