( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
A wild guess: Since you reopen FILEOUT to a new file without closing it first, maybe there's an issue with some buffered data ending up in the wrong file? I think perl is usually smart about closing file descriptors in cases like that, but I don't know if you can always count on it. Perhaps you should close it before reopening it.

reopening a file handle to a different file is just fine. I/O Buffers do get flushed to the disk and the file is closed in the normal way. You can do an explicit close(), but it is not necessary.

Title:
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.
