Re: Closing and re-opening the DATA Filehandle

in reply to Closing and re-opening the DATA Filehandle

HA! I figured it out!

This works, and no filehandles in the error messages:

my @Table; sub LoadTable { local( $/, $. ); my $position = tell( DATA ); @Table = map {chomp; hex} split ' ', <DATA>; seek DATA, $position, 0; # Reset the filehandle, rather then closi +ng it. # Never close DATA. }
But if I take $. out of the local line, then the filehandle shows up in the error messages. Thanks all!

[holli]: but then you DO give a fuck
[1nickt]: I don;t think beliefs should be down-voted, just behaviours.
[james28909]: im not quite how to explain it any better nick. you evolved from ignorance to intelligence. not the other way. the universe evolves from gas coulds and debris into planets stars and galaxies ect. it doesnt happen any other way. hence it has ....
[james28909]: some kind of logic behind it
[james28909]: and that is also anothe rpoint i made, i think it has to do with perception of the world around you. most people think of evolution on a human scale. why could life evolve on this planet? because this planet evolved in this solar system. and so on.
[holli]: here's something for you to watch, James. I think you will like it
[erix]: for the record: I have not downvoted anyone on that subthread that was my fault
[james28909]: there are all kinds of things that had to happen to let life come to be. but at the same time, life may not be the end goal IF there is any kind of end goal lol
[james28909]: well who is the person who gets to decide which behaviour is worthy of a downvote? a person with their own beliefs? xD
[erix]: teleology -- I've never understood why that was thunk up
