in thread What's the right way to write a method which returns one line at a time from a file?

$self->{file_handle} = $self->get_filehandle( $self->{file} );

You can't reload or open a new file using the above. Additionally, you can end up having a discrepancy whereas $self->{file} points to one file and $self->{file_handle} to another. If you want that functionality, then I would set file_handle inside get_filehandle() with appropriate logic.

    I always run this code on one unique file name at a time, but thanks for the contribution, I appreciate it.
