in reply to On timely destruction?

{ my $foo; open $foo, "<bar.txt"; print "Baz\n"; } { my $foo; open $foo, "<bar.txt"; print "xyzzy\n"; }
That's not an issue, because any new use of open should do a clean close, as if the variable has also gone out of scope.

    Well... not in the case I posited. Since the filehandle variables were lexically scoped, the second open is using a different lexical than the first open, so no force-close there.
