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

The truly modern PerlIO approach would be,     open my $fh, '<:raw', '/path/to/somefile.txt' or die $!;
but I'd do it with binmode still, right after opening.
