    I see you are careful to *fix* the value ot $/ before you finish. A better way is to locally scope the changes to $/ using local - then you don't have to remember to fix it. This goes for all the special vars:

    # make a block and locally scope a var { local $/; # $/ is now undef so glob a file in } # now $/ is back to normal as the changes are scoped to the block abov +e

    Often you have a convenient block to scope within. If not make one as shown above.

    cheers
