in reply to Localizing Filehandles

...unless you're using Perl 5.6, in which case:
open my $fh, "<foo.txt";
and similar now work (apparently, I've never tried it). And of course, there's always IO::Handle & friends.

    Yes. Additionally you can use the FileHandle module:
    use FileHandle; sub Whatever { my $filehandle = new FileHandle; open $filehandle, $file or die "Failed to open $file, $!"; # do stuff. close $filehandle or die "Failed to close $file, $!"; }
    But that wasn't my point.
      I was going to add "which only goes to show that by posting here you find out several other ways to do the same thing", but it seems I forgot.
