in reply to Tie::File with absolute path of the file

Tie::File can also write to the file. Maybe you don't have write permissions. Check the $! variable
tie my @content, 'Tie::File', $file or die "$file: $!";

Tip #7 from the Basic debugging checklist. Also, it looks strange to chain file test operators together like that. It might work, but I don't remember seeing it done that way.

    ... chain file test operators ...

    Per -X: "As of Perl 5.10.0, as a form of purely syntactic sugar, you can stack file test operators ... -f -w -x $file ..."
