in reply to Re (tilly) 5: out of loop
in thread out of loop
I probably could have, but I don't think it would have added value. When I write example code, I add detail where it is relevant to the thread, and remove it where it is not. How many times do you see a simple open FILE, "file" or die; in an snippet? To me, it is clear that is just a placeholder, showing, but not elaborating upon, the error handling one would normally expect.
In fact, my code started out with open FILE, $_ or die; and warn "Error!" if $@;. Perhaps I should have left it that way, making it clear the error handling was in fact a simplification, and not representative of what belongs in a real program.
