in thread Handling multiple output files simultaneously using arrays of filehandles and filenames

The $! literally tells you what the error is. I have no idea why you would want to throw that information away by not displaying it.

The "\n" in the output isn't necessary because die takes care of adding a newline automatically -- but I guess that's a matter of taste. Add one if you like. I never add newlines to die or warn statements.
