in reply to Can I write and close a file in a subroutine?

Are you trying to do something like this?

open my $fh, '>', 'outfile.txt'; test_and_write( $fh ); sub test_and_write { my $handle = shift; if( rand() > .5 ) { close $handle; return; } else { print $handle "Still open.\n" return 1; } }

It's possible. Maybe not a great separation of concerns, but possible.

If that's not what you're asking, read your question back to yourself and see if it makes sense to you, because it's a little opaque to me.

[pryrt]: LanX, I would vote "keep" if it were considered: it's not helpful, but it could be taken multiple ways, not all of which are offenseive...
