No, that's wrong. "Slurp mode" is only in effect when $/ has been localized or otherwise set to an undefined value. A filehandle READLINE in scalar context only reads a single line. seek is unnecessary, and is, in fact, probably counterproductive.

It looks to me like the OP has a tab-delimited flatfile. The first line probably lists the headers. The code grabs the field names from the first line with the first read to use as hash keys. Then it loops through the rest of the lines -- the actual data. It's not the most beautiful idiom, but it's valid code, if this is actually the poster's intent.

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.
