Without resorting to string eval everytime you could use a dispatch table to do this:

{ # compile each test once... my %file_test = map { $_ => eval "sub { -$_ \$_[0] }" } qw(r w x o R W X O e z s f d l p S b c t u g k T B M A C); sub FileCheck { my($file,$perm,$badness) = @_; die "invalid file test" unless exists $file_test{$perm}; unless ($file_test{$perm}->($file)) { if ($badness eq 'die') { die "\nError (fatal) accessing $file: $!"; } elsif ($badness eq 'warn') { warn "\nError (non-fatal) accessing $file: $!"; } } } }

This also makes it relatively simple to create "new" filetests, should you want to...

If you use eval "-$perm... I would advise checking $@ to see if you had an invalid filetest requested.

update: added $_ => so it works. Much apologies. (Also s/exsits/exists/)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
