Instead, why not just open and print the file to the web browser? I like something like this:
{ local *INPUT; open (INPUT, "file.ext") or warn "Cannot open file: $!" && return; print while (<INPUT>); close INPUT; }
Saves on memory that way. If you're not in a subroutine, you'll get an error message with the return statement. You can avoid it this way:
{ local *INPUT; if (open(INPUT, "file.ext")) { print while (<INPUT>); close INPUT; } # for diagnostic purposes, uncomment these lines # else { # print "Couldn't open file: $!"; # } }

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.
