Well for starters you're trying to read from filehandles you've opened for writing.
Yes, this is true.. sorry about that (I've edited it now), it used to seem obvious to me which was which, but recently I've been getting them all backwards with the result that I've managed to write over files that I meant to read. Clever. At least I know I'm prone to do this kind of think and back up files before using them in a perl script!!

(And you're using C-style for loops, but that's more of a style issue :).

In mitigation, defence or whatever, I've been writing a lot of C lately. But out of interest, what is the stylistic 'problem' with that style of for loop? I kind of prefer it but am open to (logical :P) reasons why there are better ways.

Those are my principles. If you don't like them I have others.

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
