in thread Perl Idioms Explained - my $string = do { local $/; <FILEHANDLE> };

Disclaimer: I've never used File::Slurp. I'm assuming that it doesn't suck. :-)

I have - it doesn't :). It also includes "write_file()", "append_file()" and "read_dir()", making it often one of the first modules I use when starting with a 'blank canvas'.

Cheers, Ben.
