in reply to File Reading (.CHR file)

From the lines #!/usr/bin/perl and open (NEWFILE, "C:\\cygwin\\home\\Administrator\\test.chr"); I'm guessing you're running this in a cygwin shell on a Windows box. Does cygwin recognize "C:\\cygwin\\..." as a path, or should it be something like "/home/Administrator/test.chr"?

    The path should probably be /cygdrive/c/cygwin/home/Administrator/test.chr if the OP's Cygwin installation is anything like mine.



      Now that I'm home, with a box that runs cygwin:
      Windows cmd shell

      C:\cygwin\home\Keszler>dir Directory of C:\cygwin\home\Keszler 12/08/2011 07:33 PM 12 test.chr 12/08/2011 07:35 PM <DIR> x C:\cygwin\home\Keszler>cd x C:\cygwin\home\Keszler\x>dir Directory of C:\cygwin\home\Keszler\x 12/08/2011 07:35 PM 155 C:\cygwin\home\Keszler\x>type #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use POSIX; use warnings; open (NEWFILE, "/home/Keszler/test.chr"); print "Start"; while(<NEWFILE>) { print $_; } print "end"; C:\cygwin\home\Keszler\x> readline() on closed filehandle NEWFILE at C:\cygwin\home\Keszler\x\te line 7.
