in reply to filehandle for close

You need to lose the braces around the argument to close because Perl is interpreting that as an anonymous hash (as "use warnings" will tell you). This works for me:

use strict; use warnings; my %files; open $files{"foo"}, '>', "xyz" or die "open failed: $!"; print { $files{"foo"} } "done\n" or die "print failed: $!"; # close { $files{"foo"} }; # oops: 'Odd number of elements in anony +mous hash' close $files{"foo"}; # works ok
