in reply to Load file into a scalar without File::Slurp

I just go:

my $contents = do { local $/; <HANDLE> };
The $/ variable is not per-filehandle, so no need to select.

    rock on. it's nice to try to share an easy way to do something and end up with an even easier way in return :-)

    Try this on for size...

    <xmp> my $content = join"",<FILEHANDLE>; </xmp>

    oooh, I get goosebumps...

      But now you've built an array just to discard it when you create the string. So, you win points for "easy to type", but lose points for "wasteful implementation".
