in reply to valid filehandle


I'd use some variation of IO::File or IO::Handle. e.g.

use IO::File; my $fh = IO::File->new("<test.txt"); if (!$fh) { #do something print "my file didn't open\n"; } else { #use $test to print something print "my file did open\n"; while (<$fh>) { # ... } }

I hope that helps.
