You need to lose the braces around the argument to close because Perl is interpreting that as an anonymous hash (as "use warnings" will tell you). This works for me:

use strict; use warnings; my %files; open $files{"foo"}, '>', "xyz" or die "open failed: $!"; print { $files{"foo"} } "done\n" or die "print failed: $!"; # close { $files{"foo"} }; # oops: 'Odd number of elements in anony +mous hash' close $files{"foo"}; # works ok
