Yup, agreed, i would s/theoretical// as there is an actual risk, and it can happen...

To handle the negative case, one could include a die handler in the open statement to make sure everything is nice and graceful.

    If I add an if (open(FH, $path) or die "$!") { doesn't that kill the application?

    I still want it to print out the rest of the webpage.

    Update2: Nevermind.
      It kills more than the if statement; if open is failing but your application isn't dying, you must be in an eval or something.
        Your right, I was printing out part of a webpage before the or die and it doesn't print any errors. Just ends the application.
