Let me try and summarize what you have said so I can respond better:
Of course until simplifies things when used properly which is why I said :
However I believe that the use of until and unless and the likes are dangerous for precisely this reason. I find it far better to use while( ! ) and if(!) for complex conditions.
The problem is that one might start with:
Which might becomes:
which might then become:
Of course when each of $no_error_opening_file ... are themselves expressions its not simple anymore.
It is for exactly the same reason that I believe its good to have a ',' after the last element of a hash or to always ensure that ifs have blocks even if whats in the if is a single statement.
I will ignore the first and last chunks as they have little to do with my original thesis.
Given this I dont see where the disagreement lies? Did I miss something?
