There are of course many programs that you do not want to issue any warnings if they cannot open certain files. Lots of application read in various, optional, configuration files, one in the current directory, one in the users home directory, and a system wide config file. Not all config files will exist, or are readable. You want the application to silently skip them. This is very acceptable code:
foreach my $file (@files) { if (open my $fh => $file) { read in file do whatever you need to do } }

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



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
