I spent time addressing all these concerns in my post. I find it weird that you chose to disreguard them when suggesting an improvement.

Sorry. I cut&paste from one of my existing scripts (which didn't support them), and didn't spend the time to merge it with yours. Yes, I probably should think about modifying my code to take some of the improvements you suggest

Your "wrap" works because you are willing to require the user to pass the handle-container in as a typeglob (returning localised filehandles starts to hit the bugs). I didn't want to do that because the natural interface is a signature of (&) so that its single arg is a codeblock. To mimic the "open" builtin it'd need a signature of (*&) which would clutter user-code with the "sub" keyword.

Opinions my own; statements of fact may be in error.

[marto]: CCTV footage of the joke gone wrong is used in educational materials now IIRC
[ambrus]: oiskuu: definitely not silly. have you ever tried to remove cat hair or dog hair from clothes? for many clothes, it's pretty hard, and running the washing machine with a cat inside would get the hair on everything.
[oiskuu]: YM, I'm interested in your questions... maybe start a a thread at polls.
[oiskuu]: marto, it ended badly? I doubt the power is easy to plug at those installations?
[marto]: oiskuu sadly yes
