    Similiar to $ = scalar, @ = array, % = hash and & = code, there is a -what's-the-word- for symbol table entries and file handles: *.

    print("1\n"); open(HANDLE, '<', 'lines.txt') or die("!1\n"); print(scalar(<HANDLE>)); close(HANDLE); print("\n"); print("2\n"); $h = *HANDLE; open($h, '<', 'lines.txt') or die("!2\n"); print(scalar(<HANDLE>)); print(scalar(<$h>)); close($h); print("\n"); print("3\n"); $h = \*HANDLE; open($h, '<', 'lines.txt') or die("!3\n"); print(scalar(<HANDLE>)); print(scalar(<$h>)); close($h); print("\n");
