in thread Split output by tabs

You showed an example of how the use of braces forces Perl to try to interpret something as a file handle and to complain that $h is not a file handle (just not as clearly as it might).

That looks like evidence in support of the claimed "best practice".

Corion watches from the sidelines. Or rather, from behind, as my system only gets output from that process and my programs adhere strictly to the GIGO design principle.
[erix]: ah, that's nice to hear Corion :)
[Corion]: erix: Yeah, the sad thing is that all I can do is document things, so I can point fingers when the auditors come :-/
[Corion]: "I'm here to open tickets and point fingers. And I'm all out of tickets."
[erix]: didn't Sybase have pretty good auditing? :) (this is a vague memory)
[erix]: (culprits often are upstream of db of course)
[Corion]: Ah, how I missed it. After some years, I revisit slashdot on a click-bait link, and it provides the usual humor instantly: "I didn't know Drupal had rules for sex. It must be a plug-in"
[Corion]: erix: This is not for sybase, but for the input data files, resp. their contents.
