( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

G'day amma,

That's probably not the best way to go. You have no error checking so you won't know which file handles in @handles are actually opened. The association between filename and file handle is through an index which is assumed to be common. You've shown no reason why you want to generate an array of file handles.

You haven't shown sufficient context to provide more than a rough answer; however, I think code like this would probably be a better solution:

... for my $file (@files) { open my $fh, '<', $file or die $!; while (<$fh>) { if (/a particular pattern/) { print "Pattern found in $file\n"; last; } } close $fh; } ...

If you have a legitimate requirement to use the code you posted, then you'll need something closer to this:

... my @handles = map { open my $fh, '<', $_; $fh } @files; for my $index (0 .. $#files) { next unless $handles[$index]->opened(); while (<$handles[$index]>) { if (/a particular pattern/) { print "Pattern found in $files[$index]\n"; last; } } } close $_ for grep { $_->opened() } @handles; ...

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.
