    Hmm, surprising... The autodie module has been a standard Perl package for quite a while. Which version of Perl are you running?

    You can get it from metaCPAN: autodie

    I would normally say get it from CPAN, but they have been down a lot lately. :(

    You must always remember that the primary goal is to drain the swamp even when you are hip-deep in alligators.

      For clarity, CPAN has not been down. has been unavailable for various reasons recently.

      Hi :) you confused with CPAN :) cpan autodie

    You don't need autodie. You can rewrite your code so that it checks for errors and reports the reason for failure, e.g.:
    open my $INFILE, '<', $infilename or die "Cannot open $infilename: $!" +; seek $INFILE, $readoffset, 0 or die "Cannot seek: $!"; open my $OUTFILE, '>>', $outfilename or die "Cannot open $outfilename: + $!";
