in reply to Out of memory error!!!

Davido's got your memory fault, but that's pretty inconsistent code formatting, and poor error reporting on the opens. (Remember, $! is your friend, and it never hurts to print the name of the file that failed to open in your error message)

    Didnt get what you were referring to regarding the code and open statement. Can you please explain me in detail as I'm new to Perl programming.

        Better change it to:

        my $filename = 'LOG_file'; open(my $LOG, '>>', $filename) or die("ERROR: Cannot open file '$filen +ame' for appending: $!");


      use autodie; try a demo
      $ perl -e " use autodie; open my($fh), qw[< noexist ]; " Can't open 'noexist' for reading: 'No such file or directory' at -e li +ne 1
      the reason it can't open comes from $!
