in thread delete FF's from a file

so i can open with filehandle "infile" without "$"?

You CAN but there are good some very good reasons not to.

You will notice from the last link above the "Modern Perl", Recommended by Anonymous Monk below, does not use it.

At the end of the day its a choice that you make but I disagree with igelkott on this.

To differentiate you could always call it $input_file_handle or similar.

    filehandle "infile" without "$"

    I don't have an evidence to support my claim of "usually" but maybe that's not relevant anyway. Of course it's possible to use and I didn't mean to imply that it was wrong. There were just so many things that looked "odd" to me.

      Yup! I see what you mean. :-)
