Interesting... You made a little typo, that should be a semicolon on the end of the open() line. But look at this, it seems to solve pg's problem. And interestingly, IO::File has the same behaviour that pg is complaining about. Is this behaviour of $. a bug or a feature?

#!/usr/bin/perl my $file = "pg-write3"; { open my $fh, $file or die "open: $!"; $line = <$fh>; $line = <$fh>; print "two reads:\t$.\n"; } # $fh is closed here print "closed file:\t$.\n"; { open my $fh, $file or die "open: $!"; print "open again:\t$.\n"; $line = <$fh>; print "one read:\t$.\n"; } # $fh is closed here print "closed again:\t$.\n"; __END__ Output: two reads: 2 closed file: 2 open again: 0 one read: 1 closed again: 1

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.
