in reply to Print Flat File to HTML

The default filehandle is STDOUT so to print to other filehandle you have to explicitly specify it. But you can avoid to express the filehandle if you select it before printing. Always check your open statement.
open OUTFILE, ">result.html" or die "Can't write to result.html: $!\n" +; select OUTFILE; print "<html><head>"; print "other html stuff";
You can save the print statement with the here-document style.
print <<HTML; <html><head> <title>HTML with here-docs</title> ... ... more stuff HTML # do some processing for my $item (@items_from_somewhere) { print "<li>$item\n"; } print <<HTML ... continue HTML ... </body></html> HTML
But, I think you can get the most from templating system such as HTML::Template. I do.
