sub ReadTheEntireFile { my $F = defined $_[0] ? $_[0] : ''; $F =~ tr`<>*?\"\|\x00-\x1F``d; # Remove illegal characters. length($F) or return ''; # Missing file name? -e $F and -f $F or return ''; # Make sure file exists. my $SIZE = -s $F; # Get file size. $SIZE or return ''; # Return zero bytes. my $BUF = ''; # Read buffer local *FILE; sysopen(FILE, $F, 0) or return ''; # Open file for read only. my $L = sysread(FILE, $BUF, $SIZE); # Read the entire file close FILE; return $BUF; }

Again, you don't need both file tests to know if a file exists.

$L contains the amount of data returned from the file. You should compare that value to $SIZE to verify that the entire file has been returned.

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