This seems much too complicated for my liking.
I really don't like the way it needs to create a temporary file, and that it writes it output out to a fixed file, rather than STDOUT, thus letting me redirect it, or play with it in some other way. I'd go for something more along the lines of:
Then I'd call it as: perl ~/dfk hosts/* > report
Playing with the format of the output is then trivial.
If you really want to be able to view the intermediate 'space' file, then you could add a command line parameter for it (including the name of the output file?).
