A filehandle will bet closed when:

  1. It is formally closed with close
  2. When it goes out of scope which occurs:
    1. If it is localised to a block and you exit said block, provided no closure of course
    2. When the program exits everything goes out of scope.

Examples, no or die $! for clarity not form.

open F, $file; close F; # F is closed { open my $fh, $file; } # $fh is closed open F, $file; exit 0; # program is gone and F is closed # closure { my $fh; sub append { unless ( $fh ) { open $fh, $file } } } # closure means $fh is not destroyed, $fh remains open until program e +xit

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.
