1s44c has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I see a lot of references to how things would be easier if file handles had sigils. Is there some reason why they don't? Using references works great but mixing references with barewords for STDIN/OUT/ERR seems messy.

I'm sure this has been asked before but I could not find anything in the site search or with google.
